Police appeal after knifepoint robbery at Gretna services

Police in Dumfries are appealing for information following a robbery at the services on the M74 at Gretna.

Around 1 pm on Monday, 23 November, 2020, a 34-year-old man was forced by another man at knifepoint to withdraw money from the ATM at the Welcome Break Services, M74 at Gretna.

The culprit then made off in a small white van along with another man.

The suspects are described as:

  1. white, 40’s to 50’s, 5ft 10, short grey hair and grey stubble. He was wearing a grey jumper and blue jeans.
  2. white, around 20 years with short brown hair. He was wearing a black and yellow hooded top.

Detective Sergeant Mark McLachlan at Dumfries CID said: “This was obviously a very frightening experience for the 34-year-old man and it is vital that we catch the suspects as they may very well do this to others.

“Anyone who may have witnessed the two men hanging around the service station or may have seen them or captured them on dash cam footage is asked to contact police at Dumfries on 101 immediately quoting incident number 1622 of 23 November 2020.”

Alternatively calls can be made to Crimetoppers on 0800 555 111 where anonymity can be maintained.
