Police have threatened to publish a CCTV image of a thief who paid for a Chinese takeaway before making off with a charity collection box in Craigavon on Wednesday night.

The suspect paid for his takeaway at the Golden Treasure Chinese on the Gilpinstown Road in Craigavon.

However, this same person then stole a charity box from the counter and left with his food and the charity box which contained money to go to those in need.

The incident happened between the hours of 11.55pm and 12.05am.

A PSNI spokesperson confirmed: “There is thankfully great CCTV of this incident and the male in question is shown very clearly – it is a nice clear picture of his face.

“Was this you? If it was phone 101 and quote the crime reference number 931 04/04/19 or call into your local police station and own up.

“If not this very clear image of your face will make it on to social media as part of Op Exposure for all our followers to see.

“Also if you were in the area at the time and witnessed this incident or in fact you know who this male is please contact us using 101.”
