A MAN stole nine boxes of Gordon's gin from Asda before evading security guards later in the day.

The thief got away with the haul of Gordon's gin on his first visit to the supermarket at the Orbital Shopping Park on Sunday, January 26.

When he returned, he picked up a number of items and made another attempt to leave without paying before he was halted by security staff.

He was then allowed to leave the store without the goods.

The suspect is described as having a dark beard, wearing a body warmer, black cap and puffa jacket.

A CCTV image has been released by Wiltshire Police to help with the search.
