CCTV appeal following fraud in Bournemouth

14 November 2017
Officers investigating a fraud at a Bournemouth hotel are issuing CCTV images of two people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

At around 11pm on Sunday 5 November 2017 a member of staff working at the Sky Bar at the Hilton Hotel in Terrace Road printed out an end of the day report that showed a refund of £5,250 had been issued onto a Mastercard using a card payment machine, which was located beside the till in the bar.

Enquiries were made with other staff, who did not know anything about such a refund so a review of CCTV was carried out.

The CCTV showed a man and a woman standing by the entrance to the Sky Bar at around 8pm before going toward the bar and picking something up. They then went into a lift for some time before returning to the bar.

Police Constable Sara Knape, of Bournemouth police, said: “As part of our ongoing investigation into this incident I am releasing CCTV images of these two people as we would like to speak to them.

“I would urge anyone who recognises them or who has any other information to contact police.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55170174167. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via
