Do you recognise these people in Bury?

Tuesday, May 1st 2012 01:00

CCTV images have been released of three people wanted in connection with shoplifting in Bury.

At 8.10pm on Sunday 15 April 2012, three people walked into the Co-op convenience store on Parr Lane, Whitefield.

The two women and one man walked around the shop and picked up meat, wine and champagne before the women put the items in shopping bags and walked out.

The man used a shopping basket from the store and walked out.

Approxiately an hour later, the man and women walked into another Co-op store on the same road and again stole meat, wine and champagne before walking out.

The man is described as being white, in his 40s or 50s, 6ft tall with short brown hair.

One woman is described as being white, in her 50s or 60s, of large build with blonde hair and glasses.

The second woman is described as being of mixed race, slim build and had long brown hair.

Police Constable Richard Garland from the Whitefield Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "The offenders had the cheek to target two neighbouring Co-ops in a matter of an hour with the man having the audacity to walk out with the shop’s baskets."

"The images are clear and I am positive someone in the community will recognise them.  If you do, or if you are a shop owner and have fallen victim to the same people, I would urge you to get in contact with police.”
