An armed robber has stolen money and cigarettes from a service station in Glasgow after threatening a staff member with a knife.
The raid took place at the station on Cumbernauld Road near the city’s Hogganfield Loch in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The employee was uninjured in the incident but has been left badly shaken.
Police are now looking to trace the man involved in the robbery who has been described as being white, between 30 and 35-years-old and around 5ft7.
At the time of the incident he was wearing a dark grey Adidas hooded top, light grey jogging trousers, a North Face beanie hat and a black face mask with an orange logo on the side.

“In particular, I would ask motorists with dash cam devices to check their footage is they may have captured images which could assist our investigation.”
