WILTSHIRE police are investigating an incident of “fraud and deception” in which a man acquired money from a supermarket cashier.

The incident took place on Friday, January 3, at Tesco, in Amesbury, at around 7pm.

A man entered the London Road store and bought an item for £2.50 at the kiosk area.

He then asked to swap money with the cashier, which “resulted in him leaving with a much larger amount of cash than he had before”, police say.

Officers have since released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
