Masked thieves at Links Hotel

THERE was a robbery at the Links Hotel in the early hours of Monday morning.

At about 4.45am two men, with their faces covered, got in to the hotel, which is in the Mid Links.

They threatened the night porter before stealing money from the hotel safe and leaving.

The 26-year-old staff member, although shocked, was unhurt.

Tayside Police have released descriptions of the two suspects.

One is about six feet tall and heavily built, with a large belly. At the time he wore a long-sleeved grey jumper. He also wore a balaclava.

The other is slim and wore a snood or scarf to cover his face, as well as a dark coloured hooded top with horizontal stripes, camouflage trousers and light coloured gloves.

Anyone who saw individuals fitting these descriptions in the area is asked to contact Tayside Police.

Enquiries are continuing in Montrose, with officers carrying out further house-to-house enquiries and undertaking an ongoing review of public and private CCTV coverage.

Anyone who has information that could assist police enquiries should call Tayside Police on 0300 111 2222, or speak to any officer.
