POLICE are investigating a theft of 18 branded bottles of vodka from a convenience store in East Dorset.

Officers looking into the incident at the Co-op store in Colehill have issued images of two men they would like to speak to.

It was reported that two men entered the shop in Smugglers' Lane at around 12.54pm on Saturday, October 12, 2019.

One man stood at the till while a second man filled a basket with 18 bottles of Smirnoff vodka before swapping them into a bag and leaving the store without paying.

Police Sergeant Carmel Ryan, of Dorset Police, said: “We have found CCTV images of two men we would like to identify and have been making efforts to establish who they are but these have so far proved to be unsuccessful.

“I would ask anyone who can tell me who they are to please contact Dorset Police.”
