A 26-year-old man was arrested on Thursday afternoon in connection with an alleged armed robbery in Wallasey.
Officers were called to Betfred on Liscard Road at around 12.30pm, on Friday, October 18, to reports that a man had entered the premises armed with what was thought to be a firearm and had stolen cash.
Staff were uninjured during the incident but were left shaken.
Inquiries led officers to a property on Raleigh Road in Prenton where a man was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.
He was questioned by police and bailed pending further inquiries.
A 21-year-old man arrested last week in connection with the incident also remains on police bail.
Anyone with information about the robbery, or anyone who witnessed it, should contact Wirral CID on 0151 777 2265 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
