Hunt for phone thief as man caught on camera

Have your say

A man was caught on camera after a phone’s anti-theft software snapped into action.

It comes after a mobile phone was taken from Planet Ice in Gosport Leisure Park, off Forest Way.

The phone was taken on February 19 at about 6pm from a woman.

A Hampshire police spokesman said: ‘The victim’s phone went missing as she was helping her children remove their ice skates after taking photos of them enjoying their day out at the rink.’

The force is appealing for anyone who recognises the man to get in touch.
