Arrests are yet to be made a month on from masked men raiding a pub armed with crowbars.

North Wales Police confirmed that four weeks on from an aggravated burglary at the Central Hotel pub on Chester Road West in Shotton, the perpetrators were still at large.

As customers drank at the Wetherspoons pub on January 23, two men wearing balaclavas and armed with crowbars entered from the rear.

At around 9.40pm, the pair pointed to the tills and are thought to have gained access to a back office where a manager was working before money was handed over.

No threats were made and nobody was injured.

North Wales Police remain on the lookout for two individuals, described as white – one about 5ft 10 and another 6ft 1.

They were said to be wearing balaclavas and dark clothing.

Investigators believe that two other men may have been involved in the aggravated burglary.

Police community support officers were stationed outside the Wetherspoons pub in the hours immediately after the burglary with access to the rear car park on Alexandra Street taped off.

DC Ross Tutton said: “We also believe two other males may have been involved in this aggravated burglary and we are appealing for anyone with information to contact Mold CID by calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting reference W008622.”

Posting on Facebook, pub management thanked customers for their kind wishes and understanding while the pub was closed before opening to trade just hours later.
