West Lothian police are appealing for information following a robbery at Linlithgow Service Station in Linlithgow.

The incident happened at around 1.45am on Thursday, February 2, when a man entered the forecourt shop and threatened a staff member with an imitation BB gun and demanded money. No one was injured, but a small sum of cash, scratchcards and cigarettes were taken by the suspect.

The suspect is described as around 6ft, of stocky build and about 35-years old. He was wearing a navy jacket with a white stripe across the chest and green shoulders.

The imitation BB gun and the jacket were found discarded nearby.

Detective Constable Emma Thacker of Livingston CID said: “Fortunately no one was injured and extensive enquiries are being carried out to trace this man, including reviewing CCTV. We are asking anyone who saw this man, or anyone acting suspiciously around the time of this incident to get in touch.

“In particular, if you were driving in the area and have any dash-cam that could assist then contact us. Likewise, if you have private CCTV that could help identify the suspect or where he went.”
