Around 11.40am on Friday 4 October 2019, a man and woman entered a liquor store on Hay Street East Perth. The man walked into the fridge section and selected a ten pack of mixed spirits and walked to the counter with the woman. The man presented a credit/debit card and attempted to pay for the item several times, each time the transaction was declined. The woman grabbed the carton and ran from the store. The man said to the staff that he will go and bring the carton back. He never returned.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
