North Yorkshire Police is appealing for information to help identify four men in connection with thefts from two supermarkets in Whitby.

Officers want to speak to the men, pictured in the CCTV images, in connection with thefts from Sainsbury’s and the Co-Op stores in Whitby.

On Monday May 23, shortly before 6pm, four men entered the Co-Op on Langbourne Road, Whitby. The men loaded over £800 worth of alcohol into their trolley. They hid the alcohol under groceries and left the store with the trolley without making any payment.

Between 6.30pm and 6.45pm on Monday 23 May 2016, three men entered Sainsbury’s in Stainsacre Lane, Whitby. The men proceeded to do the same thing they had done in the Co-Op earlier that evening and left the store with over £700 with of alcohol in their trolley without making any payment.

The men in the first three CCTV images were seen at both stores. The man in the fourth image was only seen at the Co-Op.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police. Dial 101, press 2 and ask to speak to PC Neil Graham at Whitby Police Station.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
