TESCO-24112012 have released an image of man they would like to speak to following a suspected shoplifting incident in the town.

It occurred at 6pm on Saturday 24 November 2012, when a man entered the Tesco store on Craven Street. He placed a number of bottles of Johnnie Walker whiskey in his trolley before leaving the store without paying for the goods. The thief was spotted leaving the store and when he was pursued by staff members abandoned the stolen items.

The only description of the suspect is that it is a white man, dressed in dark clothing and wearing a large hat with earflaps.

PC Andrew Ingram, of Skipton Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:

If you are the man spotted on CCTV and you are not responsible for the attempted theft, I urge you to get in touch with me as soon as possible so that I can eliminate you from my enquiries.

I am also appealing to members of the public to look at the image, and if they can name the man I urge them to get in touch with the police or Crimestoppers straight away.

Anyone who can help to identify the man caught on CCTV should contact Skipton police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Andrew Ingram. Alternatively information can be emailed to andrew.ingram@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 12120199051.
