It’s just after 9 AM on Friday, the 31st of August 2018, it’s sunny and everyone is going about their business.
Armed police then storm into Beckenham High Street following reports of an armed robbery taking place at carphone warehouse on the High Street.
As the police stormed the building to arms robbers ran off in different directions, police gave chase and remarkably managed to catch them both. A gun was recovered from my bag dropped in Fairfield Road not far from the scene of the robbery.
A police spokesman said
"Officers, NPAS, LAS and specialist firearms officers attended as there were reports that a firearm had been seen. The two suspects ran from the store in different directions and officers pursued both of them. One of the suspects left two bags on Fairfield road. One bag contained a firearm".
There were no reported injuries and the two men have been arrested and taken to a local police station.
