Police are investigating an attempted theft at Hatfield’s Tesco, and have released an image of a man they would like to identify as part of their enquiries.

At around 3.45pm on Saturday, March 16, security staff at Tesco in Great North Road saw two men acting suspiciously in the alcohol aisle before putting three bottles of alcohol in a basket.

Shortly afterwards the men de-tagged the bottles, but the pair were stopped when they attempted to leave, and the alcohol was returned.

Officers would like to speak to the man pictured as they believe he may have information that can assist the investigation.

Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact Police Constable Jessica Gibbs on jessica.gibbs@herts.pnn.police.uk or the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 41/24695/19.
