THREE MEN WENT into a Marks and Spencers store in England and stole hundreds of euro worth of women’s clothes.

The trio went into the store posing as prospective customers. One was carrying a large Sports Direct bag and another a large Next bag.

After heading over to the ladieswear section, they worked together to conceal the fact they had stashed more than £800 worth of clothing, including 10 dark blue jeans and 30 floral patterned scarves, into the bags.

One of the suspects left with the bulging Next carrier bag before the other two left about a minute later.

It happened at the Marks and Spencer store on George Street in Altrincham at about 2.40pm on 25 June.

Police have now released a CCTV still and are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Police Constable Geoff Donley said: “It is clear these men worked together to steal a large amount of clothing from this store.

It was obviously a pre-planned criminal enterprise to shoplift these goods and we therefore need to find these men in case they plan to strike elsewhere.

“Alternatively, I would ask anyone who is offered either jeans or a scarf with the Indigo brand name of Marks and Spencers from anyone other than a licensed dealer to be on their guard and call us immediately.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
