POLICE are appealing for information after a suspected fraudulent purchase of a laptop at a shop in Knott End.

Officers say the man collected a laptop from Knott End Computer and Craft Centre on Wyre View which was believed to have been paid for using a cloned credit card.

Officers have issued a CCTV image of a man that they wish to speak to in connection with the incident and are appealing to anyone with any information to come forward.

PC Andrew Halliwell said: “We are appealing for information to try and establish the circumstances around this and so if anyone has any information that they think could help then I would urge them to get in touch.”

If anyone has any information then they can call police on 101.

Alternatively, information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
