Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the theft of goods from a Derbyshire supermarket.

At around 8am on Tuesday, February 18, a man entered the Co-op, on Maple Avenue, Ripley, and took chocolate and biscuits and left the store without paying.

Officers would like to speak to the man in the images to help with their investigation.

Police are also urging anyone who may recognise the man to contact them

Derbyshire Constabulary can be contacted on the non-emergency 101 number or on Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Regarding a separate concern, fraud experts at Derbyshire Constabulary are issuing advice to prevent residents falling victim to holiday booking frauds.

National Fraud Intelligence Bureau claims fraudsters stole an estimated £7million from travellers in 2013.

Victims are scammed by adverts for holiday accommodation and arrive to discover they have nowhere to stay and believe they are booking a flight and receive a fake ticket or none at all.

Det Insp Rob King, Head of the Derbyshire Economic Crime Unit, said: “Families work hard to save up for holiday and fraudsters are taking advantage by offering deals that seem too good to miss.”

He has advised people to make sure companies are legitimate and to check companies are ABTA recognised and if a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Travellers are advised to use protected credit or debit cards and read terms and conditions.

Victims can contact Derbyshire police on 101 or Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. For advice visit Stamp out Fraud at www.derbyshire.police.uk/stampoutfraud.
