A group of men entered Acuchina, a shop that stocks Chinese medicines in Hitchin High Street, between 3.15pm and 3.18pm on Saturday, November 30.

While one man distracted a member of staff, another removed an iPhone 5S from a drawer at the front of the shop. The men have then left the store in the direction of Bancroft.

Investigating officer Pc Puneet Netar said: “I would like to speak to the men pictured in the CCTV images as they may have witnessed the incident or may have some information which could help the investigation.

“It is believed these men may have entered several other stores on the High Street so someone else may have seen them. If anyone recognises the men pictured, or if you recognise yourself, please get in contact as soon as possible.”
