Detectives investigating a cash in transit robbery in Haslingden have made an arrest.

Police were called around 8.05am on September 13 following a report of a robbery at Haslingden News in Manchester Road.
A security guard had entered the shop to refill the cash machine when he was approached by two men.
The men, wearing balaclavas and carrying a baseball bat and machete, took a cash box before making off from the scene in a black Volkswagen Golf. The guard was not injured.
The vehicle was later found by police officers following a short pursuit in the West Yorkshire area. Cash and weapons were seized by officers.

Following, a number of enquiries, officers last night (October 13) arrested a 44-year-old man from Leeds on suspicion of robbery. He remains in custody at this time.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 0260 of September 13.
