According to Kent Online on August 21 in the article ‘CCTV Images Released of Three People Wanted for Questioning after an Alleged Fraud at CEX Electronics in Ashford High Street’ the images of three individuals required for questioning have been released by police.

The incident of alleged fraud occurred at approximately 5:30pm on July 31. According to the report, after asking to see a mobile phone from the display, a female customer told a member of staff that she wished to buy the item and subsequently handed over money. It was as the cashier counted the money that the woman concealed the phone in her hand. After the cashier found that the woman had handed her an insufficient sum of money, the customer’s money was returned to her. The customer informed the member of staff that she would return to the store after getting money from a cash point. After the woman had left, staff realised that the phone box was empty and the phone was missing.

Police have released the images to help them identify the individuals.
