A ROBBER stole more than £100 from a shop after threatening staff with a scaffold pole.
The incident happened at The Best One convenience store, in High Street, at about 3pm on Tuesday.
A spokesman for Essex Police said: “A man threatened staff with what is thought to be a piece of scaffold pole and fled with a three figure sum of cash.
“The man entered and left the shop from the general direction of Holland and it is thought he ran off along Holland Road and into Harold Road.”
The man was white and was wearing a thick black jacket, black jogging bottoms, a hat with ear flaps, sunglasses and a T-shirt tied over his face.
He was also carrying a hessian-style Bag for Life with a ladybird design on it.
Anyone with information should contact the investigating officer, Det Con Claire March, at Clacton CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 07800 555111.
