A 27-year old man from Hemel Hempstead has been arrested in connection with a shop robbery in which the crook wore a carrier bag on his head.

Police made the arrest in the town yesterday morning – almost three months after the incident on May 10.

The in-cognito culprit – who had chosen a Londis plastic bag as his disguise – was shown brandishing a knife at a shop assistant in the Day One convenience store in Bennetts Gate, before taking money out of the till.

The footage was shown on national television last month during an episode of Crimewatch. The appeal saw several people phoning in with information about the incident and providing potential names of the suspect.

The man has been released on police bail until September 27.
