Police have issued a new CCTV image as part of an appeal for help to trace a man following two purse thefts at supermarkets.
The security camera image follows incidents on where victims had their purse stolen whilst shopping in Waitrose in Swaffham on February 14 and at the Aldi store on Mere Street in Diss on February 20.
Officers said the fresh image is of a man they would like to speak in connection with both the incidents.
It follows two CCTV pictures that were previously released in connection with the Diss store theft, which took place at just after 10.30am.
Anyone who may recognise the man is asked to contact Op Solve via 101 or firstname.lastname@example.org quoting crime reference 36/10784/19 or 36/12009/19. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Norfolk Police have urged shoppers to be vigilant following a spate of purse thefts in recent weeks, with similar incidents in supermarkets in North Walsham and Cromer.
