Police are releasing CCTV images of a man they would like to speak with in connection with an incident in Wickham Market.

At around 3.20pm on February 24, a man went into a store in the High Street, and bought items from the kiosk.

He confused the staff and left the store with an extra £40.

A similar incident took place in The Street, Melton at around 12.30pm on March 16. A man bought some items and left the store with £155.

The man the police would like to speak to is described as white, in his 30s, of large build and wearing a red top with a black baseball cap.
