POLICE are searching for three men after over £2,500 of items were stolen from John Lewis in Poole Retail Park.

At around 1pm on Wednesday, October 18, two men entered the store in Redlands, Branksome, before one man approached a member of staff.

While speaking to the staff member, the second man concealed items into a bag and then left the store without paying.

During a second incident at around 12.40pm on Friday, October 20, one of the men from the previous shoplifting returned with a different man.

They again placed several items into bags before leaving without paying.

Police Constable Beverley Beck, of Poole police, said: “I am now in a position to issue CCTV images of the three suspects and would ask anyone who recognises them to please get in touch.”
