E-fit released after cash box theft in High Street, Whitstable

07 June 2014
by KentOnline reporter

Police hunting for clues about an alleged cash box theft have released an e-fit.

The money tin was reportedly snatched from a security guard outside a building society in Whitstable High Street.

But one month after the crime was allegedly committed, police have now released a computer generated image of a man they would like to speak to, in the hope it will lead fresh information.

CCTV from Wednesday, May 7, has also been reissued.

Of the 10.30am crime, DC Freddie Elspass-Collins from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said: "A security guard was carrying a cash box containing a quantity of money when a man approached him from behind and forcibly took the cash box from him. The offender reportedly ran off in the direction of Middle Wall and Cornwallis Circle.

"Our enquiries have led us to believe the offender took the cash box to the Thanet area so we’re widening our appeal for information further."

 

The man police are seeking is described as white, approximately 6ft 2in tall and in his late 30s. He was wearing a high-visibility jacket with a yellow tabard, plus a hard hat and jeans.

Anyone who may have seen the man pictured in the CCTV images at the time of the offence, or who can identify the man, is asked to get in touch by calling 01303 289353 quoting reference number 07-0390.
