Northamptonshire Police are appealing to anyone who was near the store between 1.45pm and 2.15pm on January 7th to contact them with information

A man and woman were seen on CCTV taking a purse from the back of an elderly lady’s wheelchair as she was shopping in the Northamptonshire town of Rushden. AlertSystems, leading suppliers of business security systems, respond to the theft.

Two people ruined a 71-year-old’s day out shopping when they stole a purse from the back of her wheelchair in Wilkinsons, Northamptonshire. It happened in the early afternoon of Wednesday January 7th earlier this year.

Northamptonshire Police are appealing to anyone who was near the store between 1.45pm and 2.15pm on January 7th to contact them with information, as well as those who may know the identity of the couple seen breaking the law. Call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously by dialling 0800 555111.

A spokesperson for AlertSystems reacted to the incident: “Not only did the thieves choose to steal from a vulnerable, elderly lady, they thought could get away with such a despicable act.

“Fortunately there is clear footage of their faces, so the individuals involved are highly likely to be caught and rightly prosecuted. At AlertSystems we cannot stress enough the need for high quality security systems, enabling businesses to clearly identify those who break the law as this couple have done, and thus protect their customers as well as their staff and premises.”
