Detective Constable Luke Brooks said: “We first appealed for information about the incident in December 2012, but we hope that this fresh appeal and CCTV footage will encourage others to come forward.
“We have already spoken to a number of witnesses, carried out forensic enquiries and looked in detail at the CCTV footage. However, there is still someone out there who knows what happened that day and knows who is responsible and we want to talk to them.
“Although some time has passed since the incident happened it isn’t too late to help us. If you know anything about the robbery, anything about those responsible or the stolen cigarettes please call us.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Brooks on 101.
