At around 8.30pm on Sunday 14th February 2016 armed robbery took place at a Tesco Express store in Farnham Common.

Thee masked offenders walked into the store on the A355 Beaconsfield Road. One of the offenders who was carrying a carving knife jumped over the counter and ordered a member of staff to open the cash drawer.

The third offender remained at the store entrance, propping open a door ready for the other offenders to leave.

As well as cash, the offenders stole alcohol and cigarettes.

All three offenders had their faces covered and made off on foot southwards along the A355 Beaconsfield Road.
