"He was also seen to have left the shop by the alleyway and I’d really like to hear from anyone who might have seen this person either leave on foot or get into a car."

Anyone with information should call DC Ravate on 01474 366081 quoting reference XY/40724/13 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
