Police release images of men they would like to speak to in connection with two incidents in South Normanton.

On Thursday, May 21 at 10am a man entered the Post Office on Alfreton Road.

He asked the cashier to exchange Pound Sterling for Euros then when the cash is handed over he asked for the money to be changed into £10 notes.

The cashier explained that she did not have enough £10 notes and the man said that he would have Euros as he is sending it to Spain.

Another man then joined him who was described as wearing jeans and a white polo shirt; he was in his mid-30s with a moustache and had dark hair.

The first man then asked for transfer to the Western Union. The cashier got a form and the man asked for the money to be changed into single denominations. The cashier refused and the men left the shop making off with extra Euros.

On the same day at 10.15am a man entered the Post Office on the Market Place.

The man asked the cashier to change some Euros into Pound Sterling. As the cashier was counting out the money the offender said that he doesn't want cash as he needs to send the money to Spain.

As the cashier turns to get a form for him to complete the offender takes the money from the counter and left the shop.

The man was described as white, aged mid 30s and had a beard. He was wearing a blue t-shirt with a NYC logo on, shorts and a panama style hat.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Michael Dubajic at Ripley police station on 101 quoting crime numbers 21286/15 and 21258/15.
