RESIDENTS and retailers in north Essex are being urged to be on the look-out for two thieves as police release images of the couple in a bid to identify them.
The man and woman entered Petersfield Antique Village on Petersfield Lane, Gosfield, at 10am on Monday March 18 and stole a china dog.
Investigating officer, Pc Michelle Brown, said: “We believe this couple live locally and possibly in the Gosfield to Colchester strip in the north of the county as they were recently spotted acting suspiciously in a department store in Colchester.
“We think they are professional thieves so are warning retailers to be wary of them while at the same time asking people to contact us if they know who they are.
“The CCTV images are of good quality so, together with their descriptions, we hoping this will trigger someone’s memory.”
