The incident took place on July 14, 2014 between 1pm and 1.30pm at the Tesco store in Ocotal Way.

A male was seen leaving the store with a trolley full of goods, mainly alcohol, and made no attempt to pay for them.

The total value of the goods was approximately £1,100.

This second man was stopped by a security guard. The other man ran off.

A 35-year-old man from Middlesex was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

The outstanding suspect is described as having tanned skin, with short white hair and wearing a white t-shirt and blue trousers.
