Sunglasses thief strikes again

A MAN believed to have stolen £3,000 worth of designer sunglasses from an Alnwick store last month is thought to have returned to the same shop to commit a second theft last Thursday.

Staff in Boots, on Bondgate Within, got a good look at the offender, who made off with a pair of Police sunglasses.

He is described as being in his late fifties, possibly early sixties, around six feet tall with grey-white short hair, stubble and a ruddy red ‘craggy’ complexion.

He was also wearing metal-rimmed glasses, a dark navy-coloured suit and light-coloured shirt with no tie.

Insp Sue Peart said: “The same man is believed to be responsible for an earlier theft of sunglasses, which was of high value.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Northumbria Police on 03456 043 043 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
