Police have released CCTV footage of a man they would like to speak to following an incident of making off without payment in Beccles.

The incident took place at around 8.30am on Saturday, October 29, at a business on George Westood Way.

A man driving a silver Renault Megane, displaying index number ET04ZBN, filled the car with more than 50 litres of unleaded petrol. He then drove off without making any attempt to pay. It is believed that the number plate may be false.

Officers are investigating reports of five other similar incidents which took place in the Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth areas during October. Anyone with information about the man on the CCTV is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101, quoting crime number 63607/16.
