A member of staff at R&M Carpets, in Merryland, was dealing with a customer at about 1.30pm when an army cadets charity box was stolen. Around 15 minutes later a till from Hyperion Antiques, in Station Road, was taken while a member of staff was distracted.

Officers, who are linking the two thefts, have released CCTV pictures of two people they want to trace in connection.

They are not suspects but may have seen something.

INFORMATION: Anyone with information about the thefts should contact DC Amanda Foreman on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
