15-125 Aggravated Robbery – Reepham Hotel Prospect
At 7.00 pm, Sunday, 24th May 2015, the attendant was working in the office of the drive thru section of the Reepham Hotel. He heard an indicator alarm activate, alerting him someone had entered the drive thru. He was then confronted by the male suspect, who had a hammer and demanded money. The cash till was opened for the suspect who stole money from the till and then walked away a short distance.

Prior to this incident three persons, one of which is believed to be the suspect, were seen standing alongside a utility a short distance away from the Reepham Hotel, possibly in Mendes Street. The utility had a checker plate tool box in the rear section of it.
