The appeal comes as teams on the Island have been cracking down on business crime.

A spokesperson for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary said:

"We recognise that shoplifting can often be accompanied by disorder, violence and threats, which creates an environment of fear for retail workers which is unacceptable.

"This is in addition to the impact that theft can have on businesses and consumers.

"The community are our eyes and ears, and we encourage you to keep reporting information to police relating to shoplifting."
