CCTV appeal after man has his bank card stolen in Chesterfield

Posted on 23rd August 2017

We’re releasing CCTV images of two men we would like to speak to after a bank card stolen in Chesterfield.

A 66 year old man went to use the cash machine inside Lloyds Bank, on Rose Hill, at around 11.10am on Thursday, July 27.

It is believed he was watched by a man while entering his PIN number. This man then allegedly approached the victim while at the machine and distracted him, pressing cancel on the ATM and stealing the card as it came out of the machine.

A second man is thought to have been distracting a woman who had been waiting behind to use the machine.

The card was then used in a cash machine outside the bank to withdraw cash from the victim’s account.
