Nottinghamshire Police have now issued CCTV images of two men they believe may have information that could aid their enquiries.

Police Constable Xanthe Spencer is leading the investigation. She said: “Shop theft is totally unacceptable and we will always take action against offenders.


“Incidents like these not only harm businesses financially, but they can also be incredibly distressing for staff within the stores.

“Nottinghamshire Police were called to Church Street in Southwell on Tuesday (30 March 2021) at around 4pm following the report of a shop theft.

“Both men have been described as Asian and in their late 20s. One man was wearing a long heavy black coat, black hat, tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. He has been described as thin, around 6’1” tall with short dark hair.

“Meanwhile, the second man has been described as stocky, aged around early 30s, short dark hair. He was wearing a blue jacket, white t-shirt, jeans and black trainers.

“We are also keen to hear from anyone who saw a vehicle parked up in a bay in King Street and Church Street car park (opposite Southwell Minster), as we believe that will help with our enquiries.

“If you recognise either men or have any information please call 101, quoting incident number 586 of 30 March 2021.”
