police have published the CCTV footage online for the public to see

CCTV footage is being used by police in Poulton to find a man who stole a number of items from a supermarket. A spokesperson from AlertSystems responds to the report.

Police in Poulton are using CCTV footage to ask for the public’s help in identifying a thief who stole a large number of items from a supermarket. Almost £100 worth of goods was taken from a Tesco Express in Garstang Road, and images from surveillance cameras show the man walking out of the shop without making any attempt to pay for the goods.

The theft took place December 30th just after midday, and now police have published the CCTV footage online for the public to see. Anyone who recognises the man is urged to get in contact with police right away so that they can try to track him down. “On December 30th, at 12:40pm, the male has entered Tesco Express on Garstang Road, Poulton,” said PC Mark Stringer of Fleetwood police station.

“The male has then gone to the washing detergent section and has selected approximately £98 of goods and has left the location, walking past all payment points, making no effort to pay,” he added. “If any member of the public knows the identity of the male please do not hesitate in getting in touch.”
