Thieves steal handbags from Diss Morrisons store

Thieves stole handbags from shoppers at a Diss supermarket in successive days.

Both incidents took place at Morrisons in Victoria Road at the end of January.

In the first incident, a woman's red handbag was stolen by a thief who had commented on a product on a shelf before fleeing with the handbag. The victim gave chase and the suspect dropped the handbag before running from the scene through the car park.

A similar incident happened the following day when a man snatched a handbag from a trolley before fleeing the store. The handbag contained vitamins, �140 in cash and bank cards.
