CCTV appeal after theft by finding in Bournemouth

Officers investigating reports of a possible theft by finding in Bournemouth are issuing a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to as part of their investigation.

A woman aged in her 70s was using a self-service till at Asda at Castlepoint on Saturday 22 December 2018 when she requested £50 cashback.

She forgot to collect the cash and it is reported that it was picked up by a man who used the till directly after her. He then left and made no attempt to give it to the victim or hand it in to the store.

Police Community Support Investigator Rich Frew, of Dorset Police, said: “Following enquiries to identify this person I am now issuing an image of a man I would like to speak to so he can give us an account of what happened.

“I would ask that anyone who knows or recognises this man to please contact Dorset Police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55180204774. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via
