THREE people have committed fraud in a shop in Whitby, confusing the cashier by asking to change denominations of cash. It was then discovered they had left the shop with an additional £330.

The three suspects entered the Lidl store in Whitby at 7.30pm on September 25.

Now police are appealing for assistance, and have said that they would like to speak to the people pictured on CCTV (pictured above), as they may have important information that could assist the investigation.
