Police are seeking the public’s help after a Rolex watch was stolen in a snatch-and-run incident.

A man entered CM Money Shop in Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham city centre, and asked to see a watch which was in a display cabinet.

A staff member began to show the watch to him through a glass screen but the man managed to snatch it from his hand before running out of the store with it.

The theft happened at about 1.45pm on Saturday 20 November 2021.

Detective Constable Michael Gardner, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We will always investigate reports of theft and take robust action against those believed to be involved in this type of crime.

“As part of our ongoing enquiries we've released an image of a man we'd like to speak to who we believe may be able to help our investigation. I would urge anyone who recognises him or who has any further information to please come forward.”

Anyone with any information should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 418 of 20 November 2021, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
