Officers investigating the theft of a mobile phone and bank card in a Derby nightclub wish to speak to this man.

On December 9 last year, a 59-year-old man reported his bank card and mobile phone missing. He believed they had been stolen in the early hours of the previous morning in a nightclub on the Wardwick in Derby.

A quantity of funds had been spent on the card.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Please note in the event of an emergency you should always call 999.

We have recently reopened this investigation after acknowledging that our initial enquiries should have included a CCTV image appeal.

We are endeavouring to contact the victim to discuss the situation and offer our apologies.

Superintendent Tracy Harrison said: “I hope the CCTV image appeal we are now releasing leads to further lines of enquiry and ultimately a resolution that brings the person responsible to justice.

“Isolated incidents caused by human error can happen, and the impact that has on individual victims is something we very much regret.

“When we get it wrong, we apologise and use it as a learning opportunity for those involved and for the wider organisation.

“However, on the whole we are a high performing force and Derbyshire is a safe county; a county where the crime rate is low and detections are high in comparison with the national average.”
