Police make CCTV appeal after cash theft at supermarket in Gillingham
Officers investigating the theft of cash from a supermarket in Gillingham are issuing CCTV images of the suspect.
Dorset Police received a report at around 1.30pm on Saturday 23 December 2017 from a local woman aged in her 60s, who had requested £50 in cashback at a self-service checkout at Asda in Station Road but forgot to take it. When she returned a short time later the money had gone.
Officers have now reviewed CCTV footage from the incident and it shows a man taking the money from the checkout before leaving the store. The man is wearing a distinctive red and black jacket with the word ‘Yamaha’ on it.
Police Constable Nick Hunter, of North Dorset police, said: ‘The man did not appear to make any effort to hand the money back to staff and I am appealing anyone who recognises him from the CCTV images to contact police.
‘I would also appeal directly to the man who took the money to do the right thing and come forward.’
