Legal highs were stolen during the robbery of a shop in Chesterfield.

A man carrying a bread knife held up Reefers on Knifesmithgate in Chesterfield town centre.

He struck at 3.15pm on Friday, May 30 after walking into the shop with a scarf across his face in a bid to conceal his identity.

Police said the scarf slipped down while he was inside the shop and he was later described as being white, 5ft 3ins tall and of a slim build.

He met up with a taller man outside the shop, who was wearing a grey tracksuit with the hood pulled up.

They both ran off up an alleyway opposite the shop in the direction of the Donut Roundabout.

A Derbyshire Police spokesman said: “A man went into the shop and demanded money.

“He left the shop with cash and some bags of psychoactive substances, also known as ‘legal highs’.”
