Essex Police are no longer looking to identify a man wanted in connection to the theft of cash from ASDA in Harwich.

According to a police spokesman, a woman had used the self service tills in the shop, in Main Street, at around 9am on Monday, January 21.

She had requested cash but walked off, forgetting the money.

She returned a little later to find the money had gone, so reported it to an ASDA staff member who called the police.

Following an appeal, a 48-year-old man from Harwich was interviewed and a community resolution was accepted by both parties.
