A WOMAN suspected of stealing from the Co-op in Leeds Road, Harrogate, is being sought by police.

ON Wednesday, June 22 around 6.45pm, the suspect was captured on CCTV entering the store. She filled a basket with goods worth around £40 and left without making any attempt to pay.

Outside, she got into the passenger seat of a grey Volkswagen Golf and left the scene.

PC Tom Barker of Harrogate Safer Neighbourhood team said: “The suspect in this case made no attempt to pay for the goods she had selected. She even walked past the tills still carrying the basket, before making off in a waiting vehicle.

“The CCTV images we have obtained show the woman quite clearly, therefore someone should be able to tell us who she is.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Baker on 0845 6060247 quoting reference 12110102695. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
