  13. Supermarket shoppers reminded to be on alert for thieves

    Police are reminding supermarket shoppers across Sussex to be on the alert for thieves.

    This follows a recent spate of incidents in which customers have been watched whilst entering their PIN numbers and have then had their purses and wallets stolen as they leave the store. Suspects then withdraw large amounts of cash from nearby cash machines before the victims are aware.

    The two men pictured, working with others, are believed to have been successful in obtaining nearly £20,000 by targeting victims in this way.

    The men in the photo, taken at Sainsbury's in Worthing on 20 June, are described as of Eastern European appearance, one bald and the other with dark hair.

    Since November last year there have been 22 such reports in Sussex.
