Detectives investigating a theft from a charity shop in Hatfield have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to.

A man walked into Scope in Market Place between 2.30pm and 3.30pm on Tuesday, January 6.

He made his way into the stock room but left after being challenged by staff.

It was later discovered that a black iPhone 4 had been stolen. The phone was in a white quilted case which had diamantes on it.

The suspect is described as a white man, approximately 35 years old, around 6ft 1in tall, of proportionate build, clean shaven, with cropped mousey hair.

Detective Constable Emily Martin, who is investigating, said: "We would like to identify this person as soon as possible. I am appealing to anyone who thinks they may recognise the man pictured to contact me.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who has any other information about the theft, no matter how insignificant it may seem."

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Martin via the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference B2/15/73.
Alternatively call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
