iPhone thieves sought

John Freeman
Lancaster Police have issued CCTV images of two men they want to speak with after an iPhone 4 was stolen from the Orange shop in Lancaster on Thursday 28th April 2011.

The theft took place at 4.50pm at the shop on Lancaster Gate, when two men have entered the shop as prospective customers and removed the mobile phone from its mounting bracket, leaving the back plastic still attached and sticking a dummy phone in its place.

The first man is described as white, aged in his late 20s, stocky build with cropped dark brown hair and a beard. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a dark coloured hooded top over a light blue top with black stripes. He was also wearing blue jeans with grey trainers.

The second man is also white, in his early 20s, slim build with collar length, dark brown hair. He was wearing a shiny zipped up black hooded jacket, blue jeans and black trainers.

City Centre Community Beat Manager PC Emma Gornall said: “I would appeal to anybody that recognises these two men to contact police.

“These types of thefts are happening more and more regularly and I would ask the public to come forward if they have any information.”
