A CCTV image of a man police would like to speak to in connection with a scratch card theft has been released.

A man walked into a convenience store in Ipswich Road, Claydon, at around 9.50am on Sunday, June 25, and asked for a £10 scratch card.

He then asked for another item and while the shopkeeper was distracted, grabbed the scratch card and ran out of the store.

The suspect is described as white, around 6ft tall and bald. He was wearing a blue Nike-branded T-shirt with ‘Just Do It’ wording and grey tracksuit bottoms.

Officers would like to speak to the man pictured in connection with the incident and are appealing for him, or anyone with information to come forward.

Police are also investigating links between this incident and another report of a scratch card theft from a shop in Felixstowe, which took place in the High Street later the same day.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Suffolk police on 101 quoting 44584/17 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
