Brentwood: CCTV Released Following Lottery Theft
Essex police have released CCTV images of three men they want to speak to following the theft in Brentwood.
Three men entered WHSmith in the Baytree Centre at around 11.15am on March 20th, and while one of the men distracted staff and one acted as a look-out, the other removed 58 Lottery scratchcards from behind the till on the upstairs floor.
All of the men are believed to be in their early 20s and white.
The first is around 5ft 9ins tall, with dark brown cropped hair and wore a blue puffa-style jacket and jeans.
The second was around the same height, again with cropped dark brown hair, and wore a blue jumper with a white logo and jeans.
The third also had short brown hair, wore a black jacket and jeans and was about the same height as the others.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Laura Brady at Brentwood police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
