THREE people are wanted after the theft of £1,000 worth of alcohol and groceries from a superstore in north Swindon.

Wiltshire Police released CCTV images of three people they wish to speak to in connection with the theft.  

The incident happened on November 10 at ASDA north Swindon at around 11:30am.

A man and a woman piled their trolley with alcohol and then covered it with lower-value groceries before leaving the store without paying.

A third man is seen to distract security staff while the pair leave the shop and then leave shortly afterwards – discarding his trolley of shopping just outside.

PC Stephen Yeates, from Swindon Community Policing Team Support, said: “We’re appealing for the public’s help as, so far, all attempts to identify those responsible for such a large-scale theft has not been successful.

“Such thefts cause shops to have to increase their prices, so there is a detrimental impact to us all.”

Anyone with information should call 101.
