Appeal After Thefts From Boots Stores
Police in Dorset are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a series of thefts from a chain of shops throughout the county – with officers releasing images of a man they want to speak to.
High-value quantities of cosmetics have been stolen from Boots stores in Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newton, Blandford and Lyme Regis during late 2010 and early 2011.
A total of eight incidents have been reported – four in Shaftesbury, two in Sturminster Newton and one each in Blandford and Lyme Regis.
Officers believe that the thefts, which have typically been noticed following stock checks, may be connected.
Police Constable Steve Coleman, of Shaftesbury police, said: “Following further enquiries, we now believe that all of these incidents may be linked.
“I am releasing images of a man who police wish to speak with.
“This man may be able to help us with our enquiries and I would urge him, and anyone who recognises him, to contact police as soon as possible.
“It may be that this man lives outside of the county.
“I would also urge anyone with any information about any of these thefts to contact me immediately.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 01305 22 22 22. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
