Police are appealing for help to identify two men caught on camera at Sleaford’s Tesco supermarket that may be able to help officers with an investigation of a theft.

Two men – one described as a white man of slim build, with bald head and wearing a blue T-shirt and white slim fit shorts, and one described as white, average build, dark hair and wearing a white and red T-shirt and black shorts – entered the Tesco store on Northgate, Sleaford at approximately 11am on August 2, say Lincolnshire Police.

It was reported that the two men entered the store from the direction of the cashpoints, where they followed a female who reported her purse stolen a short while later.

The victim’s card was then used by one of the men at the Nationwide bank on Northgate. One of the men reportedly ran to the cash machine at the bank.
