The man heads over to the meat section before getting a backpack out and stuffing a number of items away

CCTV footage of a man police want to speak to regarding the theft of meat from Waitrose has been released to the public. An AlertSystems spokesperson responds to the report.

Police have appealed to the public for help in an attempt to identify a meat thief. CCTV footage of a suspected shoplifter has been released, which shows a man walking into Waitrose on Rowlands Hill, Bournemouth late last year. The man heads over to the meat section before getting a backpack out and stuffing a number of items away.

The man then exited the store without making any attempt to pay for the meat. Police are hoping the footage will prove useful and that a member of the public will be able to come forward with information as to the suspect’s whereabouts. “I am now in a position to release CCTV image of the suspect,” said PC Adam Aggas. “I am appealing to anyone who recognises him to call Dorset Police, in confidence, as soon as possible.”

AlertSystems, leading provider of commercial CCTV installations, takes a strong interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Thieves are always looking for an easy ride, but with CCTV the authorities have a great tool for finding the suspect. This meat thief might think he’s got away with the crime, but he won’t feel so satisfied after he realises his image has been published for everyone to see.

“CCTV is a great way for businesses to remain protected and secure. It acts a great deterrent for potential criminals and police can use the footage to catch people later on. A good quality surveillance system can help to keep your business and staff safe, and if you haven’t had one implemented already then now is the time to do so.”

Offering professional service and a complete range of security services such as monitored alarm systems, Automatic Number Plate Recognition and Avigilon CCTV security systems, AlertSystems provides effective and reliable solutions to security problems.
