Armed robber targets two Havering pharmacies in two days
An armed robber who held up two pharmacies in two days is being hunted by Havering Police.
Britcrown Pharmacy, in Upminster Road, Hornchurch; and Lloyds Pharmacy, in Tadworth Parade, in Elm Park, were targeted on April 30, and May 1, both between 4pm and 5pm.
A spokesman for Havering Police said: “The male attended the pharmacies in a calm manner, approached the till and brandished a knife whilst threatening pharmacy employees. He then took the cash from the tills.”
It is believed the robber fled on foot.
The thug is described as white, aged between 40-45, around 6ft tall, of stocky build, and speaks with a deep English accent.
