CCTV Appeal following theft at charity shop – Crosby

Merseyside Police has issued CCTV stills of a man and woman officers wish to speak to following a confrontational burglary at a charity shop in Crosby last month.

Officers were called to Crosby Housing Association charity shop on Lorne Road at about 1pm on Saturday, 11 February.

It was reported a man went behind the till and into a private staff area while a woman spoke to a member of staff. He took electronic goods and a quantity of cash from the till.

A full investigation into the incident has been launched and house-to-house enquires have been carried out.

Acting Detective Inspector Alex Rudzinski said: “We are keen to speak with the man and woman pictured to assist us in our enquiries.

“Stealing from a charity is a really despicable offence and I would like to reassure the community that we are working to identify the person or people responsible.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area and noticed anything suspicious near to or outside the charity shop to contact police. Your information will be looked at thoroughly and could really help our enquiries.

“I would also appeal to the man and woman pictured, or anyone who recognises them to contact police.”

Anyone with information can call Merseyside Police on the 101 number or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
