Police are appealing for information about a woman who is wanted in connection with the theft of a shopper’s purse at a store Sutton High Street.

The incident happened shortly after 12.30pm on December 5, when a female shopper had their purse “dipped” out their bag while browsing around in TK Maxx.

It had £550 in cash and was dumped in the shop after it was emptied.

Now officers in Sutton have released a CCTV image of the woman they are searching for, who was wearing a black jacket with a fur hood and a headband at the time.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101.
