Police in West Lothian have released images of a man they are looking to trace in connection with an armed robbery in Bathgate.
The incident took place at a shop in the Millhaugh Lane area around 5.10pm on Saturday 9th February.
Staff were threatened, and a demand was made for money, before a small sum was stolen.
The man officers are eager to speak to is described as white, of medium to slim build, aged 25 to 35 years old, with brown hair, approximately 5ft 7ins tall with a local accent.
He is pictured wearing a dark-coloured hoodie with a light-coloured panel under the arms, dark-coloured cargo-style trousers and distinctive light brown rigger-style boots.
Detective Constable Tony Gilhooley of Livingston CID said: “Although no one was injured, this was a terrifying experience for the staff involved and extensive enquiries have been ongoing since this time.
“We would urge anyone who may recognise the man pictured, or is able to provide any information that might help our investigation, to get in touch immediately."
