Main article content
Officers are appealing for help to identify two people following the theft of a £9,500 bottle of whisky from a shop in the City of London.
The theft took place on Monday 14 March 2022 at 5:41pm in Tomoka Fine & Rare Whisky Store in Royal Exchange, EC3V.
CCTV images show a man and woman standing outside the store for around 30 minutes, before entering separately. The woman then left the store and was last seen walking towards Throgmorton Street.
After both people left the store, it was found that a £9,500 bottle of rare Macallan whisky was missing.
Police Constable Niall Bowes, from the City of London Police, said: “Thefts from businesses aren’t victimless crimes, and this incident has caused significant financial loss to an independent retailer in the City.
“We are keen to speak to anybody who recognises the individuals in the CCTV images, or who may know anything about the incident which could assist with the investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the City of London Police by calling 0207 601 2107 and quoting 22000149693. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
