Police believe that two incidents, one of theft and one of fraud, that took place in Kettering and Corby are related.

They are looking to speak to five people in connection with the offences, which both happened on Friday, May 29, between 2.30pm and 3.30pm.

The theft took place first at Heron Foods in Corporation Street, Corby, when an elderly lady had her bank card stolen from her purse. The offender has been described as a woman in her 20s with a slim build and blonde hair. At the time of the theft she was with two men, one of whom was wearing a dark top with a checked shirt and the other a blue long-sleeved shirt and a black body warmer.

The second incident happened later in Lloyds Bank, Market Street, Kettering, and involved an older couple using the same card to withdraw a sum of cash from the victim’s account.

They have been described a couple in their mid to late 50s. The woman was described as plump and wore a knee-length coat with a black snood. The man was wearing jeans and a white shirt and was carrying his coat.
