A MAN shoplifted from a Poole store before fleeing on a train to Bournemouth.

PCSO Harold of Bournemouth Police was on patrol near the train station and managed to catch the thief.

The goods were recovered and returned to the shop.

This was just one of multiple incidents dealt with by police in Bournemouth over the weekend.

PCs Mike, Justin and Paul also successfully arrested a woman who was wanted and then a male who had a recall to prison.

PCSO Harold and PC Paul also helped a victim of bike theft to mark their other bikes to help prevent theft and ensure the safety of their property.

In a social media post on Saturday, Bournemouth Police said: “We're committed to keeping our community safe and appreciate your continued support. Stay vigilant and have a great day.”
