Essex police want to identify this woman in connection with a theft from the Co-op in Great Dunmow


Police want to identify a woman captured on CCTV at the time that £33 worth of items were stolen from a shop in Great Dunmow.

Razor blades, vodka and prosecco, were all taken from the Co-op in White Street at 3.30pm on Saturday, June 14.

A suspect entered the store and then picked up the items from the shelves before hiding them in her handbag and leaving the shop without making any attempt to pay.

She is described as being in her early 40s and was wearing a distinctive red floral jumpsuit with a pink cardigan. She had a large brown handbag and was wearing sunglasses.

Anyone who recognises the woman in the image or who has any other information is asked to call PC Ritch Morris at Saffron Walden Police Station on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
