iPhone thieves sought
The theft took place at 4.50pm at the shop on Lancaster Gate, when two men have entered the shop as prospective customers and removed the mobile phone from its mounting bracket, leaving the back plastic still attached and sticking a dummy phone in its place.
The first man is described as white, aged in his late 20s, stocky build with cropped dark brown hair and a beard. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a dark coloured hooded top over a light blue top with black stripes. He was also wearing blue jeans with grey trainers.
City Centre Community Beat Manager PC Emma Gornall said: “I would appeal to anybody that recognises these two men to contact police.
“These types of thefts are happening more and more regularly and I would ask the public to come forward if they have any information.”
• Anyone with any information should contact police on 01524 63333 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
