Cash Point Con: Two Suspects Identified

Police from Barking and Dagenham investigating a theft at a cash point have issued CCTV footage of two men they wish to identify and speak to in connection with the incident.

The theft is believed to have happened between 5.00pm and 5.10pm on Monday, July 4, last year when an Asda employee using the cash point on the premises in Short Blue Place, Barking, did not have her card returned.

When she returned home, she contacted her bank and was made aware of £400 worth of transactions on her card.

The victim reported the offence to her manager and after looking at the CCTV identified two men tampering with the cash machine prior to the victim using it.

The two suspects are wanted.

Suspect 1 is described as an Asian man wearing a hooded black top with a white zip and cords, on top of a white T-shirt, green trousers and blue and white trainers.

Suspect 2 is described as an Asian man with a small black beard. He was wearing a green baseball cap, a dark blue quilted top over a white T-shirt, green trousers and red trainers.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise either man or who saw them by the cash machine.

Officers would also like to hear from anyone who may have been a victim of a similar crime in the area.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
