Lancaster PC World thefts: CCTV released
Lancaster police have issued CCTV images of two men they want to trace after over £1,000 of computer equipment was stolen from a store in Lancaster.
The offence took place around 5.45pm on 14th February at PC World on Kingsway Retail Park when two men entered the store separately and went to various departments and aisles in the store, hiding a number of items under their clothing before fleeing the store.
The men escaped with a Samsung hard drive, two other drives, and two pieces of computer software worth a total of £1,160.
PC Peter Bennett said: “I’d appeal to anybody that recognises these men or has been offered computer equipment for sale in the area in the past couple of weeks to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
