Police appeal for witness to come forward following Northwich distraction theft

Police are appealing for a witness to come forward following a distraction theft in Northwich.

Police are appealing for a witness to come forward following a distraction theft in Northwich.

At around 3pm on Saturday 25 May a woman in her 60s parked her car in the Memorial Car Park and was approached by a man who asked for directions to Birmingham. He got out a map to shield a second man from view who entered the car and took her bank card.

It wasn’t until she went to pay for something at another shop, she realised her card had been stolen. In the meantime they had used the card at various locations.

PC Katharine Thomas said: “The victim had been to a supermarket before parking up at the Memorial Car Park to go shopping and was targeted by these men, who may have spotted her at the supermarket where its likely they watched her keying in her pin code when she paid for her shopping at the till. A witness told the victim that three men were involved and had left the area in a silver car.

“I’m keen to speak to the witness to see if they have more information that may help us find those responsible to prevent the suspects from committing further crimes in our community.

“I’d also like to speak to anybody who saw three men acting suspiciously in the area at the time.”
