A VAIN thief stole £800 of premium skin care products from Boots.

He snatched the products from the branch in Billericay High Street at about 2.10pm on Monday, August 4.

He took the items off the shelf and left without making any attempt to pay.

He is white, with brown, short hair and was wearing a white short-sleeved t-shirt, dark jogging bottoms and trainers.

Anybody who recognises the man in this CCTV image is asked to contact Pc Colin McCabe at the Basildon Retail Crime Unit on Essex Police 101.

Just to let the reporter in on it,the skin care products are not for him, they are stolen to be sold on, in pubs, streets, garages, bus stops etc for a fraction of the retail price, same with the meat thieves, stolen to be sold on to those that will buy meat off a scruffy bloke in the road anyway.

As it's in Billericay I reckon he just forgot to tell the assistant to charge it his account rather than stealing it.

After all Billericay is far too posh for common crime like shoplifting.....
