POLICE and garage owners are hoping this state-of-the-art closed circuit television footage will track down the masked robber who got away with the takings from The Flower Bowl Garage on the A283.

He burst into the filling station shop on London Road between Petworth and Northchapel as Navayogan Veerisingam was closing on Monday evening (December 15).

Seen brandishing a knife and crowbar he forced him to fill his shoulder bag with the cash before ripping out the telephone and making off with some £800 in cash.

The high-tech equipment which recorded the whole horror had only been installed seven days before the robbery.
