CCTV released of Wolverhampton computer thieves
23 March 2012
WOLVERHAMPTON police have released CCTV images of two men wanted in connection with the theft of computer equipment from a store near the city centre.
The pair have been caught on camera at the PC World store at St John's Retail Park, Dudley Road, on two separate occasions when an Nintendo 3DS and an HP laptop were stolen.
In the first crime, it is claimed that at around 5pm on Wednesday 25 January, the pair entered the store and took a DS console without paying.
Almost two months later on Friday 9 March, the same men entered the same shop at 11.15am and while looking at computers, staff allege they have disconnected an alarm system and taken a laptop. The pair then left the store with the computer concealed up one of their coats.
PC Carolgene Sawyers, from Bilston police station is investigating. She said: "No crime is victimless and I would urge local people to consider this when deciding whether to contact us with information on these two men."
The suspects are described by staff at the store as white, about 30-years-old, 5'8 tall and of slim to medium build.
One man had black spiky hair on top but shorter at the sides. He wore a pink earring and has a tattoo on his neck. In the images, he can be seen wearing jeans, a white and grey coloured scarf and a dark blue jacket with 'Money' written in white lettering across back.
The larger second man had short black hair and was wearing jeans and a blue parker with toggles across the front.
Anyone with information should call PC Sawyers on 101. Alternatively, people who do not want to speak with police officers directly can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
