POLICE have arrested a 35-year-old local man on suspicion of robbery.

The suspect is currently in custody at Gablecross Police Station.

This follows an incident at the One Stop Shop on Guildford Avenue in Lawns which happened around 8.30pm on Monday.

A robber entered the shop and threatened an employee while loading a shopping basket with tobacco.

The criminal then left the scene without without paying for the goods.

A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman thanked everyone who helped with a CCTV appeal they released on Tuesday.

The spokeswoman added: "We would continue to urge anyone with information about the incident to call Wiltshire Police on 101."
