CCTV released of people sought in connection with cashpoint theft from elderly couple
CCTV images of three people sought in connection with a theft from an elderly couple have been released by Cambridgshire police.
The victims withdrew money from Barclays ATM machine in High Street, Huntingdon, on the morning of February 19.
However, they were being watched by a man while a woman distracted staff.
Detectives believe the man then dropped a £5 note, picked it up again and handed it to the victims, claiming they had dropped it.
Later, as the victims left a shop, they were approached by a man, who claimed the £5 note was his wife’s and demanded it back. The woman, who had previously been in the bank, distracted the couple with a piece of paper and, as the victim handed the £5 note back, his bank card was stolen.
A short while later, a third man went back to the bank and withdrew a substantial amount of money from the victim’s account.
Anyone with information should contact DC Martyn Pinyoun on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
