Four men arrested in the early hours of  Thursday morning in connection with an armed robbery of a branch of Co-op Travel in the West Midlands have been bailed while police continue their enquiries.

The men, aged between 18 and 30, were questioned by police following the robbery of the store in Dudley High Street last Friday.

Three of the men were spotted by a police patrol in a Seat car which was believed to have been involved in the raid, according to local newspaper reports.

The men tried to escape in the vehicle, but it was caught by a stinger device and they were arrested on suspicion of robbery and car theft.

A second vehicle seen with the Seat was later stopped by police, who found a baton in the boot and detained a 30-year-old man on suspicion of robbery and possession of an offensive weapon.

Staff at the Co-op Travel store told police they were forced to open the safe by a gang wielding knives and a machete.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “We’re continuing to ask for anyone with information to contact us via Live Chat on our website or by calling 101. Please quote crime number 20/232934/22.”
