A pair of men are being sought by police after a carefully planned theft from a store at Freeport Braintree.

Officers want to speak to the two men pictured in connection with a theft from The North Face, at the popular retail park.

On Thursday, March 1, two suspects entered the store separately.

Both made their way towards the changing room area.

Whilst one was distracting a member of staff, the other concealed items from the shop in a bag.

Both suspects left the changing room area and left several items in the store before walking out.

Neither made attempts to pay for the concealed items or stopped for the store alarms.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Braintree police station on 101 and ask for Pc Jack McMullen.
