He then emptied the cash register himself, and took a quantity of alcohol and cigarettes before leaving the scene in a vehicle which was driven by somebody else, in the direction of the town centre.

Detectives have now released the two images in a bid to identify the clothing worn by the man.

Detective Constable Ben Jones, who is investigating, said: “I hope that by releasing these images we’ll be able to jog someone’s memory who may have seen something on the night of the incident.

“We understand some CCTV images can appear quite unclear, but certain characteristics, build or clothing of the individual can trigger an identification. In particular the hat has quite a distinctive pattern on it – do you know who this belongs to?
