Whitby police are appealing for help in tracing a trio of suspected fraudsters who were caught on CCTV at one of the town’s amusement arcades.

They are pictured here in these CCTV images at Millers Amusements in Pier Road.

They were captured on CCTV between 1.45pm and 2.45pm on Monday 29 October and it is believed that two people entered the arcade and used a device to make the cash hoppers in two machines pay out around £500, even though no stake had been placed.

A third man remained outside acting as a lookout.

The group which consisted of two men and one woman are described as white and aged from late teens to early 30s.

PC Zoë Warboys, of Whitby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I suspect that the people we are looking for are from the local area and ask anyone who may recognise them to contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.”

Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to call 101, press option 2 and ask for Zoë Warboys.

Alternatively information can be emailed to zoe.warboys@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 12120182628.
