CCTV appeal after handbag theft in Cirencester
By Mark Owen | 7th March 2019
Officers investigating the theft of a handbag in Cirencester have released CCTV images of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
The theft took place in the Helen & Douglas House Charity Shop on Cricklade Street at around 4.10pm on Saturday 16 February.
It's believed that the suspect followed the elderly victim into the shop before stealing her handbag from her push-along trolley.
Officers are now seeking the public's assistance in identifying the woman from the CCTV, who may also frequent Stroud, Tewkesbury and Gloucester.
We are also investigating a number of incidents which may be linked.
If you recognise the woman pictured or know who she may be please call 101 with incident 288 of 16 February or submit information via the Gloucestershire Constabulary online form.
