Police Appeal Following Theft on CCTV

We have released CCTV images of a man we would like to speak to in connection with a purse theft in Amesbury.

It happened at around 11am on 5 October 2018 when the victim, a woman in her 60s, was shopping in the Aldi supermarket in Salisbury Lane.

She was approached by a man who engaged her in conversation before moving on, and, when she left the store she realised her purse had been taken from her handbag, which was hanging from her trolley.

Do you recognise the man in the pictures?

We are urging anyone with information to contact Local Crime Investigator Cathy Boynton, from Wiltshire South Community Policing Team, on 101, quoting crime reference 54180094172. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
