Video: Police hunt brandy thieves who struck twice at a Nottingham shop

Police are hunting brandy thieves who struck at the same shop within days.

Two men entered the store in Haydn Road, Sherwood, shortly after 8pm on 19 October 2021.

One of the men distracted the shop assistant while the other grabbed a bottle of brandy and ran out of the store with it.

A second incident, involving the same circumstances, happened shortly after 11pm on 23 October 2021.

Officers investigating the thefts have now released CCTV footage of two men they would like to speak to in connection with the incidents as they progress with their enquiries.

Police Constable Tanya Hodgkiss, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We believe the men in the footage can help us with our enquiries and we would encourage them to come forward.
