CCTV appeal: Police probe suspected fraud at Skegness Argos

This story is over

Lincolnshire Police have released CCTV images of two men wanted in connection with a suspected fraud in Skegness, which is being linked to a series of similar offences elsewhere in the country.

The suspected fraud happened at the Argos store on Lumley Road on July 12.

Two men and a woman made purchases in the store and paid with what appeared to be a gift card, which was swiped at the till.

However, the card was actually a stolen credit card.

Officers suspect that the group may have committed similar offences in Newcastle, Cumbria, Scarborough and Hereford.

PC Ben Nuttell, from Skegness CID, has issued CCTV images of two people he would like to trace in connection with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact him on 101, quoting incident number 224 of July 12.
