Grocery thefts caught on camera

POLICE are seeking help to find three offenders who stole two trolley loads of groceries from a supermarket in Urangan last week.

Hervey Bay Police Sergeant Darryn Morris said about 6pm on Friday, a Caucasian woman with a long blonde pony tail wearing a black singlet and pants walked out with her baby and $270 worth of groceries.

He said the woman tried to pay with a credit card but it was denied and when the staff went to phone the bank she walked out with the trolley.

Around the same time at the same supermarket, two men walked straight out of the store without paying for the groceries in their trolley.

Sgt Morris said one of the men was Caucasian with brown hair, a bushy beard, blue polo shirt, black jeans and white shoes.

Both offences were caught on closed-circuit TV.

In other stealing incidents, a camera and memory cards in a case were stolen from the foreshore near Urangan Pier between 11.30am and 11.45am on Tuesday.

A TV was stolen from a cabin at a holiday resort in Shell Street, Urangan between 9am on Sunday and 5pm on Tuesday.

On Monday, a large flat-screen TV, digital camera and mobile phone were stolen from a house in View Street, Torquay between 10.30am and 4pm. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Hervey Bay Police on 4123 8111.
