CCTV has been released of two men police would like to identify after a woman and man had their wallets stolen while shopping at two Tesco stores.

A woman’s wallet was stolen from her handbag in the car park of Tesco in Penny’s Walk in Ferndown at around 6.15pm on Friday, February 11.

Police said two men were seen to approach the woman before one took the woman’s wallet from her handbag which was in her shopping trolley and handed it to the other men before they both made off from the scene.
