Detectives are appealing for anyone with information to come forward as they investigate a robbery in Blandford.

It was reported that at around 8.40pm on Saturday 27 April 2024, a man threatened a staff member and demanded money from the safe at the Central Store in Heddington Drive.

The man, who was in possession of a metal bar, then left the store in the direction of Jubilee Way.

Officers attended the scene and conducted searches in the area but the offender has not yet been located and detectives are continuing to explore a number of lines of enquiry to identify the man involved.

There were no reports of any injuries.

Detective Inspector Andy Marsh, of Dorset County CID, said: “This must have been a very distressing incident for the staff member involved and I want to reassure members of the public that we are carrying out a detailed investigation into this incident.

“I am releasing CCTV images of the suspect and while I know that his face is not clearly visible, I hope that it may jog someone’s memory or somebody may recognise him from the clothing he is wearing.

“I would urge anyone with information about the man’s identity to please contact Dorset Police.

“We are also keen to hear from any witnesses who have not already spoken to us, as well as anyone who may have captured relevant home CCTV, doorbell camera or dashcam footage from around the time of the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240062549. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
