Pair stole £100 from elderly victim in distraction theft

Braintree and Witham Times: Pair stole £100 from elderly victim in distraction theft Pair stole £100 from elderly victim in distraction theft

A couple removed £100 from an elderly man's wallet after following him out of a supermarket.

Police are appealing for help identifying the man and woman in connection with the distraction theft, which took place at Sainsbury's in Braintree.

The incident took place on November 25, but CCTV showing the suspects has only recently become available.

The victim was followed out of the supermarket, in Tofts Walk, at about 10am, before being distracted by the couple, who are believed to have driven away in a white Vauxhall Astra.

The man is described as wearing a light-coloured flat cap and was about 30-years-old.

The woman wore a woolly hat and multi-coloured leggings.

Anyone with information is asked to call Dc Kayli Iron at Braintree CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111.

Really getting bad as we seem to be incapable of catching them and deporting them. Even the Police deem it is politically incorrect to even state that they were foreign. When will this invasion ever end??

That's a bit rich coming from you, as, I think, you are possibly the most racist person to post comments on this site.

I don't see how you can guess that Nationality of the people in the images. The female looks like stereotype "Essex Chav" with tracksuit and "Basildon Facelift" (tightly pulled pony tail).

You're having a laugh saying that Keith - they look as foreign as they come.

Whether they hold British passports or not is another matter.

WTF???

Bhudeeka, dear. You really need to learn to STFU. Also, although I know you hail from deepest, darkest Africa, you purport to be a Brit: I would say "welcome" but for your painful ignorance and racism! Let's just make the point of your complete ignorance after all this time in the UK by your misunderstanding that 'English' and 'British' are mutually exclusive. Maybe we should have a little quiz to establish your credentials for staying in the country, hmmm?

i) What is the difference between the UK and GB?
ii) What countries comprise the UK?
iii) What is England?
iv) What do the six counties in the north of Ireland comprise?

To quote sarky Mark (whatever his name might be): "On yer bike".
