Police seek public’s help to identify gym locker thief

Detectives from the City of London Police have released images of a man they are looking to speak to in connection with a series of thefts from gyms in the City.

The man, who is not a gym member, is believed to have stolen high value watches and bank cards from gym lockers. The bank cards have then been used soon after the thefts in food stores and a bar in the City.

Detectives would like to speak to anybody who recognises the man in the images and has any information about him that may help with the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Neil Shanley, from the City of London Police said:
“This man has continuously and deliberately targeted lockers in City gyms. The bank cards are then used before the victims have chance to notice they’re gone or cancel them.

“It is essential that people use a high quality padlock on their lockers, hide their valuables and report suspicious activity to a member of staff.

“If you recognise the man in the image, please get in touch. Information that you provide could be significant to our investigation.”

If you can help the investigation, please contact the City of London Police by calling 020 7601 2222. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
