Around 10.30pm on Thursday 14 February 2019 a man and woman entered a service station on Alex Wood Drive in Forrestdale, approached the counter and asked to purchase a mobile phone. The mobile phones were behind the employee, so she turned to grab one. As she did this the man reached over the counter and grabbed a mobile phone near the register.
The phone belonged to the employee and the man placed it in his pocket. When the employee turned back around the man said he was no longer interested in purchasing the mobile phone and both the man and woman left the store and were seen getting into a silver coloured vehicle.
The mobile phone was a Samsung S8 and was tracked to the Seville Grove area before being switched off.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man and woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Brown skinned, thin build and facial hair. Wearing a black baseball cap and a black top.
The woman is described as: Light skinned, light brown hair tied back and around 30 years of age. She was wearing a red ‘Nike’ singlet.
