POLICE APPEAL: Police appeal for CCTV following theft in St Albans

 Published on: 10th November 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Officers have released CCTV images of three men who might be able to help their enquiries following an attempted theft in St Albans.

Between 3.15pm and 3.45pm on Saturday (4 November), an attempted theft occurred at Waitrose in Ermine Close whereby thousands of pounds worth of alcohol was loaded into a shopping trolley before being pushed towards the exit without any attempt to pay.

PC Ryan Coyle, who is investigating, said: “Thankfully the goods were recovered by brave members of staff, who initially challenged, then chased the offenders in an attempt to apprehend them. We believe these three men were in the shop at the time and they could have important information that may help the investigation.

“We appreciate the quality of the images could be better but I am hopeful that someone recognises them by their clothing, in particular their hats.”

“If you recognise them or you are either of the men pictured, please get in touch by emailing me at quoting crime reference 41/88266/23.”
