Police released images of man they would like to speak to in connection with crimes at pharmacies in the peak district.

Two incidents took place where a man entered pharmacies and confuced the cashier into giving him more change than he was due.

On Thursday, September 26, 2013 at 17.30pm a man walked into Lloyds Pharmacy on Rutland Square, Bakewell and purchased some tablets with a £20 note. He then received his change in coins and a £10 note which he concealed in his pocket and convinced the cashier that she still owed him £10.

On Tuesday, April 8 at 4pm a man purchased some goods from Peak Pharmacy on Firs Parade, Matlock. He confused the cashier by saying that she had not given him correct change and she gave him £10 more than he was due.

The man was described as white, approximately 50 years-old, 5ft 8ins with grey collar length hair.

Anyone that recognises the man is asked to contact PC Ian Hyde at Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team using the non-emergency number 101.
