CCTV released after charity thefts

November 14, 2012, 3:42 pm

Police have released images of two people they want to speak to in connection with thefts of charity boxes across Peterborough.

Thieves have helped themselves to eight boxes from shops across the city over the past month.

Six Royal British Legion collection tins have been taken along with an East Anglia’s Children’s Hospital box and one for Macmillian Charity.

Police are keeping an open mind as to whether the thefts are linked.

Now they have released images of a man and a woman they want to trace in connection with the thefts.

Detective Sergeant Nikki Hall, investigating, said: “Stealing charity boxes is a particularly low act. These are collections that are meant for those in need, not for criminals.

“We would like to trace these people on CCTV as we believe they may have important information which could assist our investigation.”

The thefts include:
  • Royal British Legion charity box taken from Spires Bros, in Lincoln Road, New England, November 7.
  • Royal British Legion tin stolen from Sub Xpress, in Serpentine Green, Hampton, November 5.
  • East Anglia’s Children’s Hospital taken from Van Hage Garden Centre, November 5.
  • Royal British Legion collection stolen from East Community Complex, in Padholme Road, October 28.
  • Royal British Legion box stolen from Pet’s Corner at Van Hage Garden Centre on October 22.
  • Royal British Legion collection taken from Co-op in Mayor’s Walk, West Town, on October 27.
  • Royal British Legion charity tin taken from Tates Spar, in Hampton Court, Westwood, on October 26.
  • Macmillan charity box taken from DaVal Computers in Lincoln Road, Walton, October 15.
Anyone with any information should call DS Hall on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
