HAVE you seen these men?

Police want to question them in connection with two thefts at Hungerford Arcade, in which the thieves made off with goods worth more than £20,000.

The thefts, which are being linked, were reported at a full meeting of Hungerford Town Council on Monday night.

Pc Richard Hughes outlined a recent spate of rural crime raids in the area before revealing the news.

He said: “There was a high-value shoplifting at the Hungerford Arcade in which £8,000 worth of goods were stolen. That was last November.”

However, he revealed that in a more recent, related heist “the same two guys got away with £20,000”.

He said: “They are on our ‘most wanted’ list; their details have been circulated forcewide."

Anyone who recognises the men in the images, or who has any information, should call Thames Valley Police using the 101 number.

Alternatively the Crimestoppers charity can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
