WE’RE reminding people to take extra care when using cash machines.
It comes after another person was targeted when withdrawing cash.
We now need your help in tracing two people in connection with the ATM job at Lloyds TSB bank on Cloth Hall Street, in Huddersfield town centre, between 1.20pm and 1.30pm on Tuesday, September 29.
The bank was busy when a pensioner waited in a queue at a cash machine inside the bank.
The 66-year-old woman was approached by two suspects who distracted her, removed her card from the machine then ran away.
The card was later used in Argos on Victoria Lane and at other cash machines.
We are looking for the two people pictured – a man of African Caribbean background, of stocky build, around 5ft 9ins tall with a round, stern looking face, a black wispy beard and wearing a blue and white anorak-style coat at the times.
And an Asian woman, around 5ft 2ins tall, slim build with long dark hair, distinctive black eye make up, dark painted nails and wearing all black and long black high heeled boots.
Anyone with information about the two people is asked to contact PC Anne Gilliver 0845 6060606 and or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
As usual, we would remind people to make sure they maintain their privacy when using cash machines and make sure people cannot see you enter your PIN.
Meanwhile the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be at Honley Library on November 2 between 6pm and 7pm where they will be meeting residents.
Officers will be giving out free energy saving light bulbs as well as giving out crime prevention advice as it gets darker earlier.
And in an effort to reduce anti-social behaviour, the NPT has increased patrols in and around the Honley area with good results already.
This will continue especially as the festive season is fast approaching.
