POLICE are investigating an attempted shoplifting incident at Boots on Market Street, Ulverston.

At 10am on August 9 a man described as white, of heavy build and wearing a large jacket, baseball cap and dark T-shirt entered the store and removed items from the display.

He then put the items back after being approached by a member of the public.

Police believe the man was also wearing gloves despite it being a ‘very hot day'.


Officers are appealing for any witnesses, particularly the man who approached the suspected offender, to contact PC David Thompson of Cumbria Police on 101.
