Man sought following theft at Greasby Post Office

Detectives have issued a CCTV image of a man who could have information that may assist with enquiries following an alleged theft from Greasby Road Post Office in Wirral.

It was reported that at around 9.40am on Thursday, 5 October, that a man entered the post office and distracted the cashier. He then left the store with £400 he had stolen.

Extensive CCTV and witness enquiries have been conducted in the area, and detectives have now issued a CCTV image of a man they believe could assist in their investigation.

Detective Constable Andrew Penn said, “This was a serious crime that has caused a shopworker and possibly other post offices in the area to be targeted.

“Business thefts are not a victimless crime and have a huge impact on the stores, shoppers and staff involved who are just doing their job.

“We are determined to find the offender so that other businesses in the area are aware of these crimes taking place and are not targeted in this way.

“We think the man pictured may hold vital information so I would encourage him, or anyone who recognises him, to come forward as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact @MerPolCC on Twitter or ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook with reference 23000973839.
