Police are appealing for help to identify a man they wish to speak to in relation to a number of bank card thefts in Rochdale.
An elderly man’s bank card was stolen earlier this month at the three ATMs at Morrisons, Kingsway, Rochdale after he was distracted by the offender.
The card was then used to withdraw £250 at an ATM at the Shell Eagle Service Station, Queensway, Rochdale.
At least two more victims were targeted after also being distracted.
Police have released images of three people they wish to speak to in relation to the thefts: one of a man, and one of two people who could have witnessed the offence.
