Appeal for information following theft from motor vehicle – High Wycombe
Thames Valley Police is releasing CCTV images of two men who might have vital information about a theft from motor vehicle in High Wycombe.
On Wednesday 27 April 2016 at about 5.15pm the victim, an 86-year-old woman, withdrew money from a cash machine outside Morrisons on Bellfield Road.
The woman then entered the store, completed her shopping and returned to her vehicle. Whilst the woman was unloading her shopping into the car a man approached her and started speaking in a foreign language. During this time a second man reached into her vehicle’s boot and took her purse.
Her bank card was used to withdraw money at a cash machine moments later.
