POLICE have issued an image of a man they would like to speak to after a pensioner’s wallet was stolen at a builders warehouse in Warrington.
The wallet was stolen at approximately 2.30pm on Monday, May 7 when the victim, a 78-year-old man from St Helens, was in Selco Builders Warehouse on Warner Lane, Warrington.
The wallet, which was of sentimental value to the victim, contained cards, licences and approximately £120 in cash.

“I urge the man, or anyone who recognises him, to contact the team here at Warrington on 101 so we can progress with our investigation.”
