Last night police attended an incident at Bargain Booze in Rhosddu, with dog units and police helicopters used. The store was subject to a robbery with two men now in custody awaiting questioning.
UPDATE 10:47am: Two men have been arrested on suspicion of robbery following the incident in Rhosddu last night.
North Wales Polioce have said “Police were called to the Bargain Booze store on East Avenue Wrexham at 9.48 pm following reports that two men entered the store and demanded money before making off with cash.
“Two men were later arrested and are currently in custody at Wrexham police station awaiting questioning”
Thankfully no one was injured during the incident.
Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident and anyone who may have information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101.
Original story below…
We have popped down this morning, pictured above, and are pleased to say the store is open and trading regardless of last nights events.
The Bargain Booze store is at the bottom of East Avenue, just off the Llay New Road out of town, and as of 10:30pm blocked off the road to traffic with one eyewitness calling us to say they have seen at least six police cars in the area.
Around 10pm the police helicopter arrived overhead the Rhosddu area, circling wider taking in other areas of the town.
The National Police Air Service Helicopter service based out of Hawarden later confirmed they responded to a call to Wrexham around the same time, assisting North Wales Police ‘with a search for suspects in Garden Village area – enquiries ongoing by local units’.
Back in November the same store was subject to an robbery where offenders made off with cash and cigarettes – you can read our report on that incident here.
