Images of an armed robber in action, captured on an OCTAR digital video recorder at the Worthing branch of the Bristol & West, will be shown on the BBC’s Crimewatch programme next week.

Images of an armed robber in action, captured on an OCTAR digital video recorder at the Worthing branch of the Bristol & West, will be shown on the BBC’s Crime Watch programme next week, in order to assist Police Officers with their investigations.
 
The incident happened at the beginning of July, when the un-masked man entered the Worthing branch of Bristol & West, armed with a hand gun, and demanded staff hand over cash.  Police were contacted and staff at Bristol & West’s HQ in Bristol were able to dial-in and obtain the images remotely from the OCTAR system at the Worthing Branch. Adrian Johnstone, Head of investigations at Bristol & West commented: “The images of the man were brilliant.”
 
Police officers investigating the robbery were greatly assisted in the identification of the suspect, and commented that the images from OCTAR were the clearest pictures they had ever seen from a CCTV system. The security equipment was installed by ADT’s High Security Division. Police will be showing the images on Crime Watch to request assistance from the public and issue a warning that this man is likely to commit more robberies.  The OCTAR DVR is manufactured by Visimetrics (UK) Ltd.
