POLICE are appealing for help to trace a Harrogate woman wanted in connection with the theft of a mobile phone.

The black iPhone 4GS was stolen from the Orange shop on Cambridge Street on Saturday, March 10 at around 4pm, and police are now asking for help to identify the suspect.

She is described as Asian, around 5ft 2in tall with dark hair, which was tied up at the time. She was wearing a grey jacket, black skirt, black tights and black shoes and was carrying a black bag.

PC Ben Ralston, of Harrogate Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you recognise the woman in the CCTV still please contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.

“I know that there were other people in the store at the same time and ask them to contact the police if they saw any suspicious behaviour.”

Anyone with information should contact Harrogate police on 101, select option two and ask for PC Ralston. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference 12120038297.
