A crate of beer was stolen from a supermarket in the North-East of England on December 14th at 6pm. The police have released a CCTV image of a man at the scene who they believe can assist them in their investigation. AlertSystems has responded to the incident detailed on the Sunderland Echo website.

Northumbria Police have made a public appeal for anyone with any information to come forward and contact them. Officers have released a CCTV image of a man in a grey Adidas hooded top with light red detailing, who was in the area.

The Co-op supermarket on Grangewood Court, Shiney Row was busy according to newspaper reports which would have helped the culprit steal the alcohol. The police want people with information to call them on 101 ext 69191, quoting reference number 1061 141214.

A spokesperson for AlertSystems, UK providers of commercial security systems, has released a statement commenting on the beer theft. They said: “Supermarkets are often busiest in the evening, which means the presence of CCTV is even more vital in deterring criminals.

“By questioning the man identified in the CCTV footage, the police may be able to establish who stole the crate of beer. Without this high quality CCTV there would be no way of punishing the person responsible, harming the business as well as the safety of locals visiting the store.

“At AlertSystems, we know better than most the importance of high quality security systems and the devastating consequences of not having it installed. We are hopeful in this instance that the footage provided will help lead to an arrest and act as a warning to other potential thieves.” we are the industry leaders when it comes to commercial security
