On Sunday evening 8th July 2018, there was an armed robbery at McColls Store, Shannon Drive, Brownhills West in which thankfully, nobody was hurt.
Caroline Schubert from West Midlands Police issued the following statement in response to my requester information:
‘Police were called to an armed robbery at McColls Store, Shannon Drive, Brownhills that took place at around 9.45pm on Sunday 8 July.
Two men with large knives entered the store and stole cash from a till.
A bag of cash was later recovered in Kennet Close.
Nobody was injured. No arrests have been made and police enquiries are on-going.
Anyone with information is asked to Call West Midlands Police on 101 giving log number 3173 of 8 July.’
I’d like to thank Caroline for her help in this matter – it really is appreciated.
his is an awful incident and whilst I’m glad nobody was physically injured, I realise the mental scars take longer to heal. My sympathies to the staff and members of the public who were caught up in such an awful event.
Please, if you have any further information relating to this, or any other incident, or if you witnessed something please contact Walsall Police by dialling 101 (999 in an emergency, obviously) and quoting crime number 3173 – you can also call Crimestoppers in confidence if you’d rater on 0800 555111
