Cippenham’s Asda supermarket was targeted by knife-wielding robbers during a raid last night.
Police said a white Transit van pulled up at the store, in Telford Drive, at 9.45pm and two people got.
One of the assailants ran into the store with a knife and grabbed a security trolley that a member of staff had which contained a large amount of cash.
The hooded man took the trolley to the front of the shop and loaded it into the back of the van with the help of his accomplice.
Police said they then got in the van and managed to prize open the trolley to grab the cash while they made their getaway.
The force believes a silver/grey Mitsubishi Outlander car left with the van with the vehicle described as a plug-in Hybrid version that had PHEV on the rear.
