Fresh appeal to identify Whitby fraud suspects

November 20, 2012, 4:20 pm

Police investigating a theft from an amusements arcade in Whitby are renewing their appeal to trace fruit machine fraud suspects.

The group was caught on CCTV between 1.45pm and 2.45pm on Monday 29 October 2012, in Millers Amusements on Pier Road.

It is believed that two men entered the arcade and used a device to make the cash hoppers of two machines pay out around £500, even though no stake had been placed. A third man remained outside acting as a lookout.

All of the group members are described as white and aged from their late teen to early 30s.

PC Zoë Warboys, of Whitby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The enquiries that we have made lead us to believe that the group is from the Teesside area. I ask anyone who recognises them to come forward and contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as possible.”

Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact  on 101, press option 2 and ask for Zoë Warboys. Alternatively information can be emailed to

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number   12120182628.
