Police have released a CCTV image of the two people they would like to talk to


Police have released a CCTV image of two men who officers would like to speak to following a money-changing scam at premises in Ipswich.


The incident happened on West End Road on Tuesday February 25.

Two men entered the premises around 2.10pm and kept letting other customers go in front of them until they were last in the queue.

They then exchanged notes with the cashier, swapping them around and confusing him into handing over the wrong change.

However he realised what was going on and quickly alerted his manager, and the two men fled with a small amount of cash.

Police would like to speak to the two pictured in connection with the fraud. Both are described as white and likely to be in their 30s.

One wore a black baseball cap, blue hooded top, blue jeans and black boots, the other a flat hat, a blue jumper, blue jeans and trainers.

If you recognise either of the men call Pc Cobi Moss at the Investigations Management Unit by dialling 101 and quoting reference IW/14/657.
