CCTV Released After Sittingbourne Purse Theft

Kent Police have released an image of two people they would like to speak to in connection with a stolen purse in Sittingbourne.

The black purse, which contained £250 cash, a number of cards and photographs of the victim's children, was taken from a shop in the High Street on 7th February. The victim had left the bag on top of some catalogues in the store and accidentally left without it.

It is believed a young couple then entered the shop and the man is seen to have spotted the purse and picked it up before the pair walked out.

The man is described as white with a stocky build, aged between 18 and 22 and wearing a dark jumper with white collar, a dark hooded coat, dark bottoms, dark trainers and white socks.

The woman is described as white with a slim build and long dark straight hair, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall. She was wearing dark rimmed glasses, slim build, between 5ft5 and 5ft7, white puffer body warmer with fur-edged hood, black sleeves, black leggings and Ugg-style boots.

Officers investigating the theft are now looking to trace the man and woman shown in this image, as they believed they may have information that could help them with their enquiries.

Anybody who can identify the man or woman, or who may have information that could assist police, is asked to call Kent Police's non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference XY/4136/13, or they can contact Kent Crimestoppers free (from any landline) and anonymously on 0800 555111.
