A CCTV image of a suspect believed to be involved with the robbey of a cash box at Sainsbury’s at Lyons Farm has been released by police.

CCTV of two of the cars involved in the robbery of the Loomis security van on Tuesday, March 8, also appears on this website.

Officers investigating the crime believe the men escaped in a third vehicle after they abandoned a second car, a black Subaru Impreza, in a permit-holders car park in Caxton Court, Langton Road, near Broadwater Bridge.

The robbers took the money from the stolen cash box after they broke into it under Broadwater Bridge with an axe or sledgehammer.

Loomis has now offered a £5,000 cash reward for the arrest and charge of those responsible.

Police said it was likely the stolen money had been stained with purple dye.

The suspect pictured above is captured on CCTV using dyed bank notes in the self-service ticket machines at West Worthing railway station at around 6.40pm on Saturday, March 12 and at Goring railway station at around 9.45pm on Thursday, March 10.

Detective Sergeant Simon Dunn said: “The Mondeo and Subaru are seen in a broken convoy of cars before the Mondeo was abandoned and set on fire and I am keen to speak to anyone travelling in these cars.”

DS Dunn added: “If anyone has noticed anyone exchanging or attempting to exchange purple stained money or anyone with dye on their body or clothes they should contact police immediately.”
