Security van robber drops cash in Crawley raid
An armed robber forced a cash delivery man to hand over a substantial amount of money but dropped it and made off empty-handed.
Sussex Police said the suspect targeted a security van delivering money to a cash machine at Tesco in Three Bridges, Crawley, on Friday afternoon.
The man threatened the van driver with what was thought to be a hand gun.
The suspect, who had a motocross-style trial bike, headed towards St Mary's Drive, when he got away, police added.
Det Insp Sarah Barrett said police had a large number of witnesses but appealed for anyone with information to contact the force.
She said no-one was injured in the incident just before 12:15 BST.
