He parked his van near the Chadwicks outlet on Newbridge Road and when he returned to the vehicle the money was gone.

Another vehicle pulled in  front of a cctv camera and so obstructed a view of the van - however it is not clear whether this was done deliberately.

The man believes he was followed from the town by the driver of a red Toyota car.
