CCTV images have been released of three people police would like to speak to in connection with a debit card theft in Peterborough.

A wallet containing a debit card, cash and other loyalty cards was taken from the shorts pocket of a 77-year-old shopper on September 28.

It is believed the man was observed by two men as he entered his PIN in Asda, Viersen Platz, at around 11.55am.

As he left the supermarket, a female approached him from behind and took the wallet from his pocket.

The card was then used at various stores and cash points in Peterborough and Kettering before it was discovered missing and cancelled.

PC Sam Tucker, investigating, said: “Shoppers should remain vigilant when using their debit and credit cards in shops or at cash machines.

“When entering your PIN, use your free hand and your body to shield the number from prying eyes or hidden cameras. Report lost or stolen cards or suspected fraud to your card issuer immediately.

“I would also urge shop assistants to be vigilant for suspicious large and rushed payments. If you suspect something then please review the card details.”

Anyone with any information should contact PC Sam Tucker on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
