Raider flees empty handed after robbery bid at Cotswold store
A STORE manager wrestled a suspected thief who tried to steal £1,000 worth of jackets from an outdoor shop.
The 40-year-old worker grabbed the thief as he tried to leave Cotswold Outdoor store in Hedge End without paying for seven coats.
Police have now released CCTV images of the suspect, who eventually fled empty-handed down a nearby alleyway near the Lower Northam Road-based outlet.
The would-be thief was white, in his late 20s and wore a blue hooded top and blue jeans.
Witnesses to the incident, at 3.30pm on September 27, should contact PC Prior at Hedge End on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
