Hunt for hotel reception thief
3:00pm Friday 3rd August 2012 in Chelmsford News
POLICE hope releasing a CCTV image showing a suspected thief will lead to his arrest.
Cash was stolen from the Saracen’s Head hotel, High Street, Chelmsford, shortly before 4.30am, on Wednesday, July 11.
A guest, who had been staying at the premises for several days, was captured on hotel CCTV when a three-figure sum from reception went missing, before he left.
PC Marcus Baker said: “The man gave hotel staff false details so we’re at a loss at the moment as to who he is.
“We have obtained this very good CCTV image of him and hope someone can provide us with a name.”
It is thought the man has travelled through Suffolk, Kent, Sussex and London, as well as Essex, since the start of July.
Anyone with information can call Chelmsford police on 101.
