Armed robbers raid van
Oct 17 2008 by Andrew Hirst, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
ARMED raiders escaped with cash after robbing security guards outside a van.
The van had pulled up outside Hbos on Bethel Street in Brighouse just before 11pm last night.
A guard had got out and was walking towards the bank when the three raiders struck.
One of the raiders had a gun and the victim was forced to hand over the cash box he was carrying.
The gang escaped on foot down Canal Street and towards the town’s market.
All the thieves wore dark clothes and balaclavas.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Although they fled on foot did anyone see them after they ran into the market or getting into a vehicle?
“Did anyone see them hanging around Bethel Street before?”
Anyone who saw what happened or has any information should call Calderdale CID on 01422 337085.
