Between 9.25 am and 9.45 am on Monday (25th February), the man pictured above walked into Poundstretcher in the town centre.

One item stolen was a pack of 160 Tetley Tea-bags, valued at £2.49.
“We are very keen to identify him and would encourage anyone knowing his identity or whereabouts to make contact with us,” said Sergeant Mark Edwards.
