Detective Constable Andrew Penn said: “This was a serious crime that has caused a shopworker and possibly other post offices in the area to be targeted. Business thefts are not a victimless crime and have a huge impact on the stores, shoppers, and staff involved who are just doing their job. Reading, Basingstoke, Berkshire

"We are determined to find the offender so that other businesses in the area are aware of these crimes taking place and are not targeted in this way. “We think the man pictured may hold vital information so I would encourage him, or anyone who recognises him, to come forward as soon as possible.”
