CCTV images have been released in connection with an alleged theft at a sweet shop in Totton, where two adults were seen stealing jars of sweets while with children – reports the Southern Daily Echo on June 7 named 'Shameless adults caught on camera taking sweets.'
The Echo reports that CCTV captured the alleged thieves brazenly strolling in and out of the shop, as one man hid large jars of sweets under his t-shirt - resulting in over £120 worth of boiled sweets being stolen from the shop. The footage even shows the male thief taking a jar of sugar free sweets for diabetics before walking back in and putting them back after realising what they were.
The two opportunist thieves stuck during a busy period in the sweet shop, and were thought to be with three to five children. Police say the theft happened between 5pm and 5.30pm on Tuesday June 1.
