Police release new CCTV images after more thefts in Aylesbury

Police have released a new CCTV image following a series of frauds and thefts in Aylesbury.

Earlier in the week, Police appealed for information about a man following a scam at Cambridge Place Car Park, Aylesbury. 

Today Police have shared another image of a man they would like to speak to, after a series of thefts and frauds in Aylesbury Town Centre on Tuesday (18/02).

Officers believe the two scams may be linked.

Between 9.30 am and 11 am five elderly women were approached at cash machines across the town centre by a man claiming the machines weren't working. 

The offender then watched them enter their pin as they used the machine, the transactions were then unsuccessful. 

After the victims left the man returned to the machine and withdrew money from the victims account. 

Police believe he may be using a device to obtain the victim's details.

Investigating officer PC David Grainger, based at Aylesbury police station, said:

“I am keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man in this CCTV image as I believe that he has vital information about these offences.

“You can get in touch using our online form or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43200056209. Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“I would also like to urge members of the public to remain vigilant and look out for those around them. The victims of these offences have all been elderly and may not see this appeal on social media. If you see something that you believe to be suspicious, please report it to us online, on 101 or, if you believe a crime is taking place, then call us on 999.

“We will continue to patrol the town centre over the coming days but with local residents and businesses helping to provide extra eyes and ears in the area, I hope we can identify who is committing these crimes.”
