Police are appealing for help in identifying a man who they would like to speak to in connection with a distraction theft in a Cheltenham shop.
Officers have released CCTV images of the man in relation to the incident at the shop in Tewkesbury Road last month.
Two men entered the shop between 1.30pm and 2pm on Wednesday 17 November.
One of the men is believed to have distracted staff by asking questions about the wines on display, while the second man put bottles under his coat and trousers.
Both men left the shop without paying and have taken bottles of alcohol worth a total of £1,000.
Following a number of inquiries, officers would now like the public's help in identifying the man pictured.
Anyone who recognises the man or who has any information is asked to get in contact. Information can be submitted through the Force website, quoting incident 244 of 17 November: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
Alternatively contact 101 with the same details. Information can also be given anonymously to independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online https://crimestoppers-uk.org/
