At about 2pm on Thursday a man entered a shop on London Road South and made a purchase worth £1, paying with a £20 note.

During the exchange the man then stated he could pay using the correct change but by using a counting scam ending up leaving the shop with more money than he was owed.

Moments later another man then entered a pharmacy on the same road and performed the same scam before leaving and meeting up with the first man.

They were then seen to walk up London Road South in the direction of the train station.

The first suspect was white, had mousy bushy hair, was clean shaven and had a local accent.

He was wearing light-coloured shoes, blue jeans, a grey hooded top, a dark green jacket and a burgundy polo shirt with a white circular motif on the left hand side of the chest.

The second man was of Mediterranean appearance and had dark collar-length hair and stubble and was wearing tan shoes, blue jeans, a black shirt and a grey blazer.

Police are appealing for anyone with information in relation to these incidents to call PC Laurence Connolly at Lowestoft Police on 101 quoting reference LO/14/1259 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
