Do you know who this is?

Do you recognise this man?

We want to speak to him in connection with the theft of a number of purses from a hotel in Basingstoke.

At some time between 12.30pm and 1.15pm on Tuesday, 5 March, the purses were taken from bags inside a conference room at the Apollo Hotel, on Popley Way.

The stolen bank cards were then used to withdraw thousands of pounds from nearby cash machines.

This incident is believed to be linked to other similar thefts at hotels in Southampton and Whiteley.

These happened at the Holiday Inn Southampton on February 12, the Jury’s Inn Southampton, on February 13 and the Solent Hotel in Whiteley on December 14 and 17.
