Bedfordshire Police have released CCTV images of two people that they would like to speak with following a fraud that took place in a Leighton Buzzard shop.

The incident happened at around 2pm on Tuesday 3 June in Peacocks, High Street, Leighton Buzzard, when the offenders selected £260 worth of goods and made their way to the tills to pay.

The offenders paid in cash but as the sales assistant checked the notes, the offenders distracted him and were able to remove £120 from the pile of notes.

As the sale was completed, the offenders asked if the goods could be delivered and when the cashier said no, they asked for a refund on the majority of the items. The cashier completed the refund (£216) and the offenders left the store with £44 of paid for goods, the refund and the stolen £120.

If you recognise the individuals pictured contact the Crime Service Team, on the non-emergency 101 number quoting crime reference JD/21296/2014.
