Fiskerton Post Office armed robbery: police explore link with Blyton Post Office raid
Police are investigating a possible link between Post Office armed robberies in Fiskerton and Blyton.
A man armed with what appeared to be a gun stole cash during the raid in Ferry Road, Fiskerton, at about 10am on February 10.
While last month, a knife-wielding robbery man held-up the Post Office service in Blyton, Gainsborough, on January 6.
In both cases the offender rode off on a quad bike.
Lincolnshire Police spokesman Dick Holmes said: “We are exploring the possibility that the robberies are linked.
“One offender had a knife, and one what is thought to be a firearm, but in both incidents the offender has got away on a quad bike.”
Two men arrested on suspicion of the robbery in Blyton, a 21-year-old and a 19-year- old from Gainsborough, are on bail.
In the latest raid, a worker was ordered to hand over cash at the Post Office inside Fiskerton Village Hall, with staff members protected by a screen.
It opens on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays as an outreach service from Reepham.
Anyone with information about either incident should call police on 101.
