crime can be an incredibly distressing experience

Leading providers of CCTV security, AlertSystems, have reported on a recent attempted burglary in Alfreton. Two Derbyshire stores were targeted and police have now released CCTV stills of the man they want to speak to.

A man was captured on CCTV walking into a Premier Express store in Mansfield Road, Alfreton. Shortly after entering the premises he began to threaten a member of staff with a knife and successfully made off with a small amount of cash. He can be seen on the store CCTV wearing a dark coloured hooded top with a white zip. The footage also showed the man running away from the store along Prospect Street.

Detectives believe that the same man went into the Stop and Shop store in South Normanton at around 5.45pm the same day. As with the earlier incident, the offender began to threaten a member of staff with a knife and demanded cash. However, the individual was challenged at the Stop and Shop store and fled empty-handed. Fortunately, no one was injured in either of the offences.

The CCTV stills from both incidents have now been released as part of a public appeal for information, in the hope of finding the man for questioning. As experts in commercial security, AlertSystems take a keen interest in news stories such as this. A spokesperson from the company made the following statement: “Having your business targeted by crime can be an incredibly distressing experience for both business owners and staff members.

“Fortunately, installing high-quality CCTV at your business premises will not only help to prevent crime but will also act as invaluable evidence to the police. Utilising the clear resolution images as part of a public appeal will help to bring criminals to justice. Especially when the power of social media means the images can be shared with speed and ease.”
