A CCTV image has been released after cash was stolen from a shop’s Post Office section.

Thieves took £200 from the Post Office inside a Budgens store in a “distraction theft” in Watling Street, Radlett.

It happened at around 4pm on October 20, following which Hertfordshire Constabulary today (November 3) released a CCTV image of a woman with dark hair who was in the area at the time, who they believe could help with their enquiries.

A distraction theft is a crime where someone commits the theft after tricking someone into giving their attention to something else.
