A THIEF took a pen­sioner’s purse while she was in an Orm­skirk shop.

The thief fol­lowed sev­eral el­derly women around Marks & Spencer food store, Aughton Street, be­fore tak­ing the purse from the vic­tim’s hand­bag when she was dis­tracted.

The woman, in her 70s, had put the hand­bag in a shop­ping trol­ley.

The man also stole goods from the store dur­ing the in­ci­dent, which took place at about 1.30pm on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 8. A card from the stolen purse was later used in Orm­skirk and Liver­pool.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for help to catch the of­fender and have is­sued a CCTV im­age, above, of a man they want to speak to.

A spokesman said: “We know the qual­ity isn’t the best but we think it’s im­por­tant to post them as part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should email 2615@ lan­cashire.pnn.po­lice.uk quot­ing ref­er­ence SB1805636.
