MILL END: CCTV appeal following a distraction theft in Rickmansworth

 Published on: 3rd August 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Officers investigating a distraction theft in Mill End, Rickmansworth, have released CCTV images of a man they wish to identify and speak to as part of their enquiries.

The offence happened outside Tesco Express on Tudor Parade, off Berry Lane, at 2pm on Wednesday May 20.

The victim, a man in his 30s, began to use the ATM outside the store when a man approached him and tried to engage him in conversation.

The victim ignored him, but an error message appeared on the ATM screen and he could not retrieve his bank card, so he went inside the store for assistance.

On returning home the victim cancelled his bank card but was told that four transactions totalling £350 had already been made.

His bank has since reimbursed him for the money that was stolen from his account.

PC Dominic Lowth, who is investigating, said: “We appreciate that a lot of time has passed since this offence however we were only able to gain access to the CCTV images a short while ago, and we owe it to the victim to explore every avenue available to us.

“We would like to trace the person pictured as we believe they may have been in the area at the time of the offence and could have vital information for us.

“We understand that the images are not the highest quality however maybe you recognise the person’s stance or profile? Please get in touch if you can help.”

You can email PC Lowth at, report information online at, talk to Force Communication Room operators via web chat at, or call the non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 41/39414/20.
