The police officer who is investigating five allegations of fraud has released images of a man he would like to speak to.
The incidents have occurred over an eight month period but the majority happened in early June this year.
Two alleged offences happened at the Telegraph News Shop on Danebridge Crescent in Oakwood, two at Allestree Pet Supplies at Park Farm in Allestree and one at Rallye Motors on Blenheim Drive in Allestree.
At each shop a man is thought to have taken items from the shelves and then asked for a refund. On each occasion the shop assistant has reimbursed the man believing that his request was genuine.
The man in the image is described as being between 5’4” – 5’8” tall, slim, with short, dark, balding hair.
Anyone who recognises the man in the image should contact PC Tim Phillips on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
