Bag is stolen from a woman in her 80s in Chesterfield. Can you help us trace these women?

Posted on 7th December 2017

We’ve released CCTV images of two women we’d like to trace in connection with the theft of a handbag from an 86 year old woman in Chesterfield.

Can you help us trace them?

The bag, which contained cash and a mobile phone, was stolen from the victim’s walking aid, we believe, while shopping in Boots on Low Pavement between 11.25am and 11.30am on Tuesday, November 21.

Before coming to Boots, the woman had been to the Santander bank branch on Central Pavement nearby, and officers are considering the possibility she had been followed.

If you recognise the women in the images, or have any information which could help our inquiries, please call PCSO Charlie Richmond on 101, quoting reference 17*506682, or send him a message online through the Contact Us page of the website by clicking here.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
