Man sought following theft of venetian blind from Dunelm Mill, Northampton

Police have released a picture of a man who they wish to trace in connection with an alleged theft of a venetian blind from the Dunelm Mill store in Nene Valley Retail Park, St James Mill Road, Northampton.

Sometime between 2pm and 2.25pm on Sunday, 16 October, a man entered the store and allegedly concealed a venetian blind down one trouser leg and up the back of his jacket.

He then left the store making no attempt to pay for the item. He was followed by staff up a nearby canal path, where he dropped the blind before making off.

The blind was damaged as a result.

Officers would like to speak with the man pictured or anyone with information can contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
