Officers want to speak to this man in connection with an incident last month.

Police say the incident happened around 2.00pm on Monday 25th March, but the details have only just been released.

An offender removed the cards from a purse behind the reception desk of The Amesbury Dental Practice in Stonehenge Walk.

The cards were then used in two local newsagents - the Co-Op and McColls on Salisbury Street.

Using the contactless facility, to buy alcohol and scratch cards.

Wiltshire Police have also stressed the importance of contacting your bank to cancel or block your cards as soon as possible if you have them stolen.

The force say:
