Police probe shop robbery

Detectives at Antrim Road CID are investigating a robbery at a supermarket on Shore Road, north Belfast on Wednesday, August 4.

Shortly before 9pm three masked men entered the store. Staff were threatened and a firearm was mentioned but not produced.

It's understood money was removed from two tills before the robbers made off in a vehicle driven by a fourth man. It's believed the blue BMW X1 was stolen during a creeper burglary in the Mosside Mews area of Dunmurry on July 27.
