Police are asking for your help in identifying four people who might help their investigation into a distraction theft in Welwyn Garden City.

Between 11.30am and 12.30pm on Thursday, August 30, several offenders worked together to steal an elderly woman’s bank card and obtained her pin by looking over her shoulder as she paid for goods at Aldi in Bessemer Road.

The card was subsequently used to withdraw £200 before it was stopped by the bank as suspicious activity.

“Warn your elderly parents to be extra vigilant and to be wary of strangers being extra nice,” said the daughter of the victim at the time.

“It’s horrid to have to say that but sadly that’s how it is.”

Anyone who recognises them, or has any information that can help police, is asked to contact PCSO Daniel Hill by emailing daniel.hill@herts.pnn.police.uk, calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/33431/18, or report information online at www.herts.police.uk/Report.
