CCTV appeal following thefts in Lyme Regis

Officers investigating two thefts in Lyme Regis have issued CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to.

One person had their wallet stolen from their clothes while they were in the changing rooms of the Lyme Regis Sailing Club between 7pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday 17 July.

Attempts were subsequently made to use their bank card at the Tesco store in Broad Street.

A second victim had left their bank card in the changing room at around 11am on Monday 15 July. While out on the water they received a text notification from their bank to say the card had been used at two locations in Lyme Regis.

Police Community Support Investigator Luke White, of Dorset Police, said: “We are making enquiries into these thefts and have obtained CCTV images of the man believed to have used the bank card at Tesco.

“I am appealing for anyone with information as to his identity to contact us.”
