Police have released CCTV images of two women they would like to speak to following a supermarket.

The incident took place at around 1pm on Thursday 5 June at the store in Recreation Way.

Police say two women went to the self-service till at Sainsbury’s in Mildenhall on Thursday June 5 and paid for a pair of hair straighteners.

One of the women then left the store with the original receipt, whilst the other one approached a staff member stating she had not received a receipt.

A duplicate receipt was printed and the woman then used this to claim a refund on the item. Police say the original receipt was subsequently used to claim a fraudulent refund at a branch of the supermarket in Ely.

Officers would like to speak to the two women shown in the CCTV images. They are both described as white and around 5ft 5in tall. The first woman had bleached blonde hair which was tied back and wore a light aquamarine t-shirt and black leggings. The second is described as having long red hair and wearing a grey long-sleeved top and black leggings.

Anyone who believes they recognise these woman or who has any information in relation to this incident is asked to contact the Investigations Management Unit on 101 quoting reference MH/14/890, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
