A reward of £5,000 has been put up for anyone who can help find two robbers involved in incidents in Brentwood and Holland-on-Sea.
On November 29 at about 11am two men weilding a stun gun and baseball bat ambushed a security guard outside the post office in Eastham Crecent, Brentwood, after he had delivered money to the store.
The gun was set off on the guard, but both suspects who were also wearing balaclavas run off empty handed towards Broadwalk South.
Then on December 20, two men armed with a baseball bat and what is thought to be a stun gun threatened another security guard making a cash delivery to the post office in Stratford Road, Holland-on-Sea.
They escaped with a five figure sum of cash.
In both incidents the man armed with the stun gun was said to be about 5ft 6in to 5ft 8in tall and of stocky build, while the other robber was about 6ft.
Anyone with information about the incident in Brentwood should contact Dc Leanne Ford at Basildon CID on 101.
People with information regarding the second incident should contact Pc Annalise Redden at Clacton CID also on 101.
