A MANHUNT has been launched after electrical equipment was taken from a Basildon supermarket.

Police want to identify three men following two incidents at Sainsbury’s in Cricketers Way, Basildon.

Two men, shown in the first and second CCTV image, are alleged to have gone into the store, which is on the Cricketers Retail Park, at 1pm on Wednesday, February 19, selected a television from the display and tried to leave the store without making an attempt to pay for it.

Security staff followed them into the car park and the suspects made off, leaving the television behind.

On Monday, February 24, at 7.45pm the man pictured in the third CCTV image is alleged to have removed a speaker system from the display and left without making an attempt to pay for the goods.

The police only released the CCTV images today.

If you recognise these men please contact PC Kevin Bingham at Basildon Retail Crime Unit on Essex Police 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
