Police have issued CCTV images of suspects they want to question over a series of crimes across the Bourne area.
Officers have released an image of a man who is beleived to have stolen from the Jewellery Box in West Street, Bourne, when he visited with a child at about 2.40pm on Saturday, January 12. He is believed to be part of a group which includes another man.
Both are of Asian appearance. The adults did not speak much English and the child was used to translate.
It is thought that after agreeing to buy some gold jewellery from display cabinets, they distracted the sales assistant while one of the men stole jewellery worth £950.
Police are also trying to trace a team of three men involved in the theft of spirits worth about £1,000 from Sainsbury’s in Bourne on Monday, February 25 at 2.30pm.
The three men are believed to have entered the store with two apparently keeping watch and distracting staff while the third is thought to have pushed the full trolley out of the store without paying.
A woman suspected of passing counterfeit £20 notes to staff at Heron Foods in North Street, Bourne and Folkingham Village Store on February 18 and 19 has been captured on CCTV.
Identification is also sought for two men who are suspected to have been involved in the theft of games from Tesco in Cherryholt Road, Bourne on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 26.
On the first, occasion games worth more than £1,000 were stolen.
The first man is thought to have entered the store and acted as a lookout for the second man, who is suspected of taking the games from the shelf, removing the security case and hiding it on another shelf, before leaving the store with the games hidden in a blue “bag for life”.
Anyone with information which could identify any of these suspects should contact police on 101. Alternatively, contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
