Police are appealing for information after a bag of cigarettes and tobacco was snatched from the back of a car on Monday, April 28.

The victim had visited Best Way Cash and Carry on Dallow road and purchased cigarettes and tobacco, to the value of £800.

At a junction on Dallow road, at 1.30pm, an Asian man wearing dark clothes got out of a silver Vauxhall Vectra, opened the back door and took the bag containing the products.

Detective constable David Elias said: “This is an extremely busy road junction and other motorists, pedestrians and the driver of the blue vehicle, could have vital information that may help identify the person responsible for this crime.

“It is also possible that the offender had followed the victim from the cash and carry and I would urge anyone who has information relating to this offence to contact the police.”

Anyone with information should call DC Elias on 01582 394376.
