12:49pm Monday 14th October 2013 in Local
AN APPLE iPhone has been stolen from a member of staff in a Kidderminster estate agents.
The incident happened at Toners, Worcester Street, at about 4.10pm last Wednesday, October 9.
A man went into the shop and spread some leaflets on a desk. He was asked to leave and picked up the leaflets along with a phone belonging to a member of staff which was underneath them.
PC Tom Court, of West Mercia Police, said: “The victim felt the offender was acting strangely and it only became clear what he had been doing when she realised her Apple iPhone worth £275 was missing, along with an envelope containing keys.
“The man had been into other estate agents but it is possible he also visited other types of shops and we would like to hear from anyone who has been approached by him or has CCTV of him.
“We would also like to warn other shop and office staff to be aware this type of theft does happen and to remain vigilant.”
The man, who was aged 20 to 25, is believed to be an eastern European and spoke in broken English. He is described as 5ft 6ins tall, of slim to medium build, with dark eyes and greasy short hair, with a scruffy beard under his chin.
He was described as “grubby” and was wearing a long sleeved dark-coloured jacket and dark-coloured jeans or trousers.
Anyone with information should call PC Court on 101, quoting incident 435-s-091013, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
