Police are offering a £25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted following a robbery in Brookfield.


Lee James Seddon, from Salford, is still on the run following the robbery on a cash van at Brookfield Newsagent on Langfield Road in June.

Lancashire Police have now stumped up a cash reward as they try to hunt down the 36-year-old whose last known address was in Bolton.

A security van was making a cash delivery to the ATM at the newsagents when three men wearing balaclavas approached the guards.

One of the robbers wielded a machette and a number of cash cassettes were stolen.

Detective Sergeant Mark Riley from Central Division CID said: “I would appeal to anyone who has information as to Lee Seddon’s current whereabouts or with any information that could assist with our efforts to find him to contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting reference LC-20130612-0332. He should not be approached by the public.

“I would also issue a warning that those harbouring Seddon that they will be prosecuted for assisting an offender.”

Michael Bond, 31 of Gorsey Avenue, Manchester and Robert Pinkney, 31 of Isis Close in Salford have both pleaded guilty for conspiracy to commit robbery. They will be sentenced at Preston Crown Court on the 3rd December 2013.
