APPEAL: South Yorkshire Police have released CCTV images of two individuals they believe could hold valuable information about a theft in the town centre last month.
POLICE officers have released CCTV images of two individuals they believe could hold valuable information about a theft in the town centre last month - in which a large quantity of money was stolen from an elderly couple.
It is reported that at around 11am on Saturday, April 1, the victims - a couple in their 80s - withdrew a quantity of money from a bank on Eldon Street.
It is understood that the couple were observed making this transaction in the bank by a woman, who was then joined by a second woman and the pair followed the elderly couple onto Peel Square and into a shop off Market Street.
Whilst the victims were in the shop, it is believed that the money was taken from the elderly woman’s bag without her noticing.
Officers are now keen to hear from the individuals shown, or anyone who recognises them.
To submit any information, you can do so by the online portal or by calling 101 quoting crime reference 14/64476/23.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
