Image of suspect from theft at Sainsbury's in Basingstoke
4:24pm Monday 24th September 2012 in Local
POLICE have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with a theft at a Basingstoke supermarket.
Shortly before 10.30am on Saturday, September 8, a man used the cash machine outside Sainsbury ’s in Hatch Warren, Basingstoke, to withdraw some money. However, he walked away before taking his cash from the machine.
When he realised his mistake, he went back to the machine but the money had gone.
Police officers say that CCTV footage from the shop appears to show a man who was near the cash machine when the man made his transaction, taking the money from the machine and not making any attempt to give it back to the victim.
The man is then seen to walk off towards the bus stop.
PC Glen Spierling said: “This seems to have been an opportunistic theft; the man seen taking the money did have an opportunity to call out to the victim, but did not.
“Saturday mornings are usually very busy at this location so someone may have seen something or may recognise the man in this CCTV image.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Spierling at Basingstoke Police Station on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
