Officers investigating the theft of a purse and subsequent card use in Bournemouth are issuing a CCTV image of a man they would like to identify.
Sometime between 6pm and 7.50pm on Friday 7 June 2019 a purse was stolen from a staff room area at the Royal Bath Hotel on Bath Road.
It was subsequently used to pay contactless for items in Tesco Express in The Triangle. The victim, a local woman aged in her 20s, received notification of this transaction and immediately cancelled her card. A further attempt was made to pay for items at a second store at 8.11pm the same day but this was declined.
Police Constable Graeme Johnston, of Dorset Police, said: “As part of our enquiries I am now in a position to issue a CCTV image of a man we would like to identify and I am appealing to anyone who knows who he is to please contact Dorset Police.”
