Shoplifters have been targeting a Stevenage Tesco store stealing everything from beer to toilet roll.

And now 14 images from the shop’s security system were released yesterday, covering incidents recorded almost every month of the year, by police investigating thefts from the Tesco Express store in Mobbsbury Way.

Items stolen between January and September include sandwiches and toiletries, which in some cases have been scanned in at self-service tills but not paid for.

One thief walked into the store, picked up two cases of beer and walked straight out again.

The store has a security guard stationed by the tills and have banned more than two students entering the shop at a time.

“We are keen to identify the people in the photographs as we believe they may have information which could help our enquiries.”
