Two men approached staff and asked to change a £50.

They confused a member of staff by changing their minds, and saying they gave different notes.

They left with £198.

At 4.30pm the same day two men – believed to be the same suspects – went to the Co-Op supermarket in Hallett Road, and again asked to change a £50 note.

They left, also with £198, after confusing staff.

Anyone with information about the incidents, or who recognised the men pictured, is asked to contact Pc Braden at Essex Police on 101, or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
