Appeal after robbery in Beauchamp Roding

Police are appealing for information after a robbery in Beauchamp Roding on April 3.

Two people have since been arrested.

Officers were called just before 7pm on Sunday to reports that a five-figure sum of cash had been stolen from the victim by three men. It is believed that they were armed, and it is being treating as a targeted incident.

Two people were arrested on suspicion of robbery after a car was stopped in High Road, Benfleet, on the evening of Wednesday April 6.

The first person arrested, a 35-year-old man from Brentwood, was also arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis. He has been released on bail until April 30.

A 17-year-old boy from Canvey was also arrested, but will face no further action.

Detectives from Loughton CID are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the village between 6pm and 7:30pm and seen anything suspicious, and anyone with dash cam or doorbell footage in the area which may be relevant is asked to get in touch.

Please quote the crime reference number 42/84037/22.
