Appeal after theft from Smythes Toys in Lakeside

ESSEX Police is appealing for the public’s help to identify these people in connection with an ongoing theft investigation. 

We were called to Smythes Toys in Lakeside Retail Park in Grays on 5 October following a theft which is believed to have occurred around 6:30pm. 

The three suspects entered the store and stole two Lego sets worth £700 each. 

The first suspect is described as a white woman, mid to late 20s, with a tan and was wearing a cream jacket and brown shorts. The second suspect is a white woman, mid to late 20s wearing a cream jacket over an orange top. 

The third suspect is a white man, mid to late 20s, with wavy dark hair. He was wearing a dark jumper with three large horizontal stripes across the chest.
