Last modified: 29 September 2020 at 03:21pm

Local businesses lost cash to fraudster.

North Yorkshire Police has issued CCTV of a man they would like to speak to in connection with two fraud offences that left local shops out of pocket.

On 14 June 2020, a man entered the One Stop shop on Holgate Road, York, and made a purchase which was paid for with cash. He then proceeded to ask for his change to be in various different types of cash and coins, requesting a number of swaps, before leaving the shop. Following this, the shop assistant found the till to be missing a significant amount of cash.

Subsequently, on 15 June 2020 the One Stop shop on Fourth Avenue in York was then targeted in the same way which resulted in a further cash loss.

Officers would like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV image as they believe he may have information which could help establish the full circumstances of these two incidents.
