A CCTV image has been released by police in Spalding who are investigating the theft of a customer’s phone from a shop in the Market Place.

The incident happened on Thursday, December 4, in the Peacocks store. The owner of the phone put it on a clothes rail while shopping at around 10am that morning. She walked away forgetting to pick it up and when she returned a short time later, it was gone.

Review of the shop’s CCTV show a female picking up the phone and putting it in her bag. The phone is a black iPhone 4 in a white case with a pink and turquoise Aztec design on it.

PC Paul Cooper has released a CCTV image of a woman he would like to speak to, who may have information to assist the enquiry, and he is reminding the public that ‘theft by finding’ is still a theft offence with serious consequences.

Anyone with information should call PC Cooper on 101, quoting 320 of December 4, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
