CCTV APPEAL: Man in his 60s targeted in distraction cash theft

Thursday 21st October 2021

CASH was stolen from a car in West Malling.

The incident happened near the High Street at around midday on Tuesday, September 21.

It is alleged two men approached a man in his 60s and distracted him while they stole a quantity of cash from his parked car.

Investigating officer, PC Joshua Littley, said: "We have been making enquiries in the area including the examination of CCTV footage and are now able to release these images.

"While the men are wearing face masks which hide their features, one of them has shorts and distinctive red trainers and it is hoped somebody recognises one or both of them and calls the appeal line."

Anybody with information that may assist the investigation is urged to call 01622 604100, quoting crime reference number 46/185206/21. You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555111 or using the anonymous online form on their website.
