“I urge those pictured or anyone who recognises them to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible.

“Staff at the store were shocked by this incident, and we are very keen to find those responsible.

“I would like to thank the public for their assistance so far.”

No arrests have been made.

After 7 weeks we have drawn a blank so we will throw it out there....

7 weeks after the event is an extremely excessive delay.

Let's hope sooner or later they will slip up and get nabbed.
