Shop lifting incidents in two Swindon shops – witnesses sought

Wiltshire Police is appealing for information after a gang of thieves targeted two shops in the Swindon area.

Around 4pm on Sunday 4 June 2017 at the One Stop in Purton a man entered the store and distracted a shop worker by asking about an item while two women followed him in and took a number of tins of baby milk powder – concealing it in their lined skirts.

All three then left the shop without making any effort to pay for the goods and drove off in a silver VW estate with an “04” number plate.
