Scarborough police are hunting a man suspected of stealing electrical goods worth £1,600 from three outlets.

The man is believed to have taken a Samsung laptop from Comet, in Valley Bridge Parade, an iPhone 4 from the 3 Store, in Westborough, and a Samsung Galaxy Smartphone from the town’s T Mobile shop.

All three offences were committed between 2pm and 3.15pm on Saturday, May 5.

PC Steve Normandale said: “The CCTV images of the man we would like to trace are fairly clear and I’m hoping that someone will recognise him and let us know who he is.

Anyone who can help the investigation is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
