Footage of the three people suspected to be involved in the crime has now been released to the public

The reaction follows reports in Cambridge of an 87 year old woman becoming the victim of theft, and now police have released footage of three suspects they want to speak to. An AlertSystems spokesperson provides a statement.

Police in Cambridge have released CCTV footage of three people they want to speak to regarding the theft of an 87 year old’s purse and bank card. The victim only realised that her purse was missing when she received a phone call telling her about irregular activity on her account, which proved that it was being used by thieves.

Footage of the three people suspected to be involved in the crime has now been released to the public, and police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. “We believe the victim’s card was used in Asda in the Beehive Centre on February 13th between 1pm and 1:20pm to purchase a Samsung TV worth £459 and household items amounting to £117.50,” said PCSO Gemma Newton. “£300 cash was also withdrawn from NatWest in Fitzroy Street at about midday the same day. I am particularly keen to speak to the three people in the CCTV footage as I believe they will be able to assist with our investigation.”

AlertSystems, a leading provider of CCTV in commercial premises in the UK, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “There are fewer crimes worse than those that target the elderly, and this incident goes to show the lengths some people will go to for money.

“Thankfully the victim was notified about irregular activity on her bank card, and now the police can track its usage and use vital CCTV recordings to find the suspects. Surveillance cameras are a proven method of finding criminals and high quality systems should really be installed across all commercial properties.”
