Detectives investigating a robbery at a pet shop in Warrington have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in relation to the incident.
At approximately 5pm on Thursday January 11 two men entered a pet shop on Lovely Lane, Warrington. After several minutes inside the store they reached into a display case and stole several boxes containing 10 snakes.
As they attempted to leave the store they were disturbed by a member of staff and they pushed her to the ground before running away down Lovely Lane to and getting in to an awaiting vehicle.
The suspects then sped off and abandoned the car close by. The snakes have since been recovered and returned to the pet shop.
Detective Constable Carl Davis, of Warrington CID, said: “Enquires in relation to this incident are ongoing and as part of my investigation I’m keen to speak to the men featured in the CCTV image as I believe that they may hold vital information in relation to the investigation.
