Swad Boots Theft6

Our officers in the Swadlincote Safer Neighbourhood Team have issued CCTV footage from a town centre shop and would like help in identifying two people. 

The officers are investigating a theft from Boots of nearly £400 worth of ‘Olay’ products and would like to speak to the two people in the images in connection with the theft. 

The incident happened at the shop on High Street, Swadlincote at around 4pm on Friday, September 8. 

The image shows a man and a woman, with the man carrying what appears to be a bag with a Mickey Mouse image and the woman wearing a distinctive green jacket with lighter green sides. 

Sergeant Graham Summers, who is in charge of the team, said: “We would like help from the public in identifying the two people in the image or from anyone who has been offered Olay products at a cheaper price. 

“The team are working closely with the store to try and ensure that this type of theft does not continue, and if it does happen, we have other ways of finding who is responsible.” 

If you think you can help please call the team on 101 quoting reference number 17000386924.
