Brighton Bingo Hall in Armed Raid
Earlier this week an armed gang stole £10,000 from a Gala bingo hall in Brighton. Three masked men stormed into the bingo hall wielding knives and a pistol. Around forty startled bingo players watched on as they stole the contents of the safe.
A spokeswoman for Sussex police commented, “It was a quiet night and the place was shattered by these men making threats. It was a terrifying ordeal not only for the staff but for the customers as well. This was quiet a brazen robbery. It was very quick – literally just a few minutes.
Gala Bingo said; “The police have requested CCTV footage and are investigating the incident. Until Gala has further information it can make no comment. The club is open for business as usual.”
