Phone thieves are being hunted by police after going on a crime spree accompanied by a child.

Officers have released CCTV of two men they hope will be able to help them with their enquiries after two shops in Faversham and one in Broadstairs were targeted.

In all three incidents, one man would reportedly talk to a member of staff while the other browsed the store and strangely, they were always accompanied by a small boy.

One of the men police hope to speak to.

Police are now linking this recent incident to two others - one in Broadstairs High Street on Saturday, September 17 where an Apple iPhone 6S was snatched, and another in a clothing store in Market Place, Faversham, at 11.50am on Wednesday, August 31, when a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was taken.
