An armed man fled with a small amount of cash and cigarettes after holding up a Washdyke dairy last night.

Timaru police said an offender brandished a firearm and demanded money from the till at the Night'n'Day store on Hilton Highway about 8.50pm.

The male was described as wearing a dirty white bandanna over his face, light mustard coloured oversized baggy pants, a short-sleeved black and white jacket (or top) over a light-coloured, long-sleeved shirt, and black boots.

Police said the robbery was traumatic for the staff involved but no-one was injured.

They want to hear about any sightings of a pink or gold champagne-coloured 1993-94 Ford Falcon in the Washdyke and greater Timaru area. The vehicle was possibly occupied by a driver and two passengers.

Detective Sergeant Dylan Murray can be contacted on 03 971 5198 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
