POLICE: Appealing for information on Wellsford robbery last Friday 17th May

Police investigating a report of a concerning robbery in Wellsford on Friday 17 May are seeking assistance from the public to identify those involved.


The incident, at a superette on Rodney Street, was reported to Police around 6.05am.



It’s understood two men have entered the premises with weapons, which were not firearms, and verbally threatened the staff member before taking cigarettes, tobacco, and vape products.
