THE Bel­mont Lo­cal Polic­ing Team is ask­ing the pub­lic to help iden­tify 12 peo­ple be­lieved to be in­volved in thefts from the Sport­spower store in Bel­mont.

■ June 8: About 12.05pm, a light-skinned man al­legedly hid a green jumper down his pants.

■ July 27: Around 2.55pm, a dark-skinned woman con­cealed sev­eral cloth­ing items in her bag and left the store with­out pay­ing.

Two light-skinned women, pos­si­bly a mother and daugh­ter, al­legedly stole cloth­ing and dam­aged fur­ther stock by try­ing to re­move se­cu­rity tags.

On Septem­ber 10, po­lice be­lieve th­ese women used the chang­e­rooms to con­ceal the prop­erty on their bod­ies then pur­chased some shoes and two other items.

The se­cu­rity alarm was ac­ti­vated as they left. They left with­out re­turn­ing the prop­erty after the older woman al­legedly be­came ver­bally abu­sive.

When ap­proached by staff and asked to come back, they pre­sented their bags to staff who could see the stolen items.

A fe­male staff mem­ber is said to have been threat­ened by the women, who said they were in­tra­venous drugs users and would stab her. The women left with the prop­erty still in their bags.

A Cau­casian man went to the store on two listed oc­ca­sions, first on Oc­to­ber 24 and again on Oc­to­ber 30.
