The first incident on June 1, saw a man enter Morrisons supermarket on Market Street, Chapel-en-le-Frith. He took two boxes of six one-litre bottles of Bells whisky and six one-litre bottles of Captain Morgan rum without offering payment.

On August 13, a man and woman entered Masson Mills in Matlock Bath, and took ten Yankee candles from the shop display without making payment.

Two male offenders, pictured, entered a One-Stop shop on Station Road in Hathersage, on August 29. They took five bottles of Moet rose champagne without paying.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “We would urge anyone who recognises the people shown in the images to get in touch either with police or Crimestoppers as soon as they can.

“The quality of CCTV stills varies widely but even when they are quite poor, we do still get results.

“It might be that people recognise distinctive clothing from the images and can identify the person that way.

“Even if people don’t know for certain if it is the right person but have some information that could help, we would like to hear from them.”

Members of the public should not approach anyone they believe to be pictured, but should contact Derbyshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting the reference number next to the image.
