CCTV images released following robbery at BP garage in Portchester

Alert message sent 09/06/2021 13:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Good afternoon,

Today we have released some CCTV images of some men we want to identify in connection with a robbery in Portchester last night (Tuesday 8 June).

You can view the images by scrolling through the gallery on our web article here: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/news/hampshire/news/appeals/2021/june-2021/cctv-images-released-following-robbery-at-bp-garage-in-portchester/ 

Between 10.30pm and 10.40pm, two men entered the BP Garage on West Street, and one of the men threatened counter staff with a knife whilst making demands for money.

The second man stood by the front entrance whilst this was happening.

Money and tobacco was handed over before the men left the area on foot in the direction of The Crossways.

As part of this investigation, we are also looking at a shoplifting incident the previous night (Monday 7 June) in which three men stole a large quantity of meat from the same garage.

We would like to identify the men pictured in our website appeal, as they may have information to assist our enquiries. The quality of images varies, but we know someone will know who these men are.

Do you know them? Has anyone tried to offer you cigarettes/tobacco or meat for sale in suspicious circumstances?

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting 44210224372.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via their anonymous online form at crimestoppers-uk.org
