Hampshire Police have issued cctv images of two women they would like to trace. Officers said that on March 22nd at 6pm two women entered the Ampress Park Co-op at Wellworthy Road in Lymington.
They asked the cashier to change £200 in twenty pound notes into ten pound notes. They then further asked for fifty pound notes instead-and playing on the need to be served quickly, handed back only £100 to the cashier, thereby stealing £100.
