Woman has £200 stolen at Morrisons in Stamford
A woman who was carrying £200 in cash for her gravely ill husband's birthday present had her bag stolen in a supermarket.
The theft yesterday (March 12), between 12.30pm and 12.40pm, took place at the Morrisons store in Uffington Road, Stamford.
The woman reported to police that her hessian shopping bag - which contained her Radley bag and purse - was taken from her shopping trolley.
She told officers the bag contained £200 for a birthday present for her husband. She was planning to get him something special as she believes it will be her husband's last birthday due to his ill health.
Also inside the bag were some sentimental items including pictures of her late son.
The woman, who is recovering from recent surgery and did not want to be identified, said that 'the bag wasn't on show' and that incidents like this have 'got to be stopped'.
A police spokesman said that they were investigating the crime.
Anyone with information should call Lincolnshire Police on 111 quoting incident 210 of March 12.
