Police have released CCTV images of eight men and two women they would like to speak to in relation to a series of historic thefts.

Although the nine incidents date back to over a year ago, Herts Police have launched a fresh appeal for help from the public.

They include a theft from an 80-year-old man on March 8, 2013, whose wallet was stolen on St Peter’s Street.

Over £6,000 was stolen from a woman in Morrisons car park on Hatfield Road, after a credit card was stolen by a woman on July 18 last year.

And on May 22 last year, £1,000 was stolen from an employee of City Food and Wine on Catherine Street.

Also in the city, an elderly man fell victim to a theft in Sainsbury’s on Everard Close, when his credit card was stolen after being asked if he had dropped £5 on March 28 last year.

The same Sainsbury’s also saw over £600 worth of alcohol stolen on February 21, 2013, including two bottles of Martell Brandy.
