Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are issuing CCTV images of two people they would like to speak to in connection with a theft and subsequent fraudulent use of a bank card in Bournemouth.

 Some time between 3am and 6am on Tuesday 15 September 2020 a bag and purse containing a quantity of cash were stolen from a car that was parked on Maxwell Road.

 A bank card was used at shops in the town to make transactions totalling around £100. 

 Police Community Support Investigator Amy Torrington, of Bournemouth police, said: “Following enquiries I have obtained CCTV images of two people using the stolen bank card at the Esso garage on Bath Road and Co-op on Christchurch Road.

“I appreciate that you are not able to see their faces clearly, however, I am hoping someone may recognise them from the clothing they are wearing.

“I would ask anyone with information about their identity to please get in touch.

“Finally, I am reminding residents to please take all valuables with them when they leave their vehicles.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55200138764. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
