A CCTV image of a man police would like to identify.

Police officers investigating the theft of a purse and subsequent fraudulent use of a bank card are issuing a CCTV image of a man they would like to identify.

Some time on Tuesday 18 April or Wednesday 19 April 2023, a purse was stolen from the Poole or North Dorset area.

A bank card, which was in the purse, was subsequently used to make fraudulent transactions in the Yeovil area, totalling over £3,725.

Police Community Support Investigator Lindy Wilson, of Dorset Police, said: ‘An investigation is underway to establish exactly where the purse was stolen from and when.

‘As part of my enquiries, I have obtained a CCTV image of a man believed to be using the stolen bank card and I would ask anyone with information about his identity to please come forward.’

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55230059713. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
