Appeal to trace man in Garstang

Police are appealing for the public’s help in tracing a man following an incident at a shop in Garstang.

Just before 5.00pm on Friday 24th September, a man entered the Co-Op store on High Street in the town. After paying for a box of chocolates, the man asked the cashier if they could change a quantity of notes.

As the cashier was concentrating on counting out the money, the man started talking to them and confused them into handing over cash from the till along with the money he had originally asked to be changed.

The man is described as being around 25 years old, having slightly tanned skin and of medium build with short, dark brown hair.

PC Alexis Walch said: “We are keen to trace a man captured on CCTV and speak with him in connection with this incident.

“I would appeal to anybody who recognises the man in the photograph to contact police.

“I would also like to speak with anybody who might have any information at all which could assist with this investigation.”

• Anybody with any information should contact police on 08451 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
