Cannington Police are seeking assistance with a stealing incident that occurred at a service station along William Street, Beckenham on Saturday 6 April 2019.

Around 7pm, a man entered the service station and asked for a packet of cigarettes. He was advised the particular brand was not available. The man left the store.

He returned a short time later and asked for another brand of cigarettes. The staff member selected the packet and asked for payment before the man asked if he could look at the packet.

He is described as fair skinned with a large build and was last seen wearing a high-vis long sleeve shirt, black/green runners and black pants. He also wore a beige coloured baseball cap.
