Police have released photos of a man with a distinctive tattoo whom they would like to talk to following a theft in which expensive Pokémon cards were taken.
Officers say a man, wearing a mask and hooded top, entered Chaos Cards at Sandgate Road, Folkestone at around 1:50 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20 and approached the cash register.
He asked for a box of Pokemon Darkness Ablaze cards and when told the price, he allegedly showed the store staff a knife and told them to put the cards and cash from the cashier into a bag.
He then left the scene.
Pokémon cards sell for around £ 90 to £ 100.
Will Robinson, who works as a supervisor in the store, says he was “a bit shaken up” as a result of the experience.
He said, “He had just had lunch and it was pretty quiet. A man walked over to the cash register and asked about the Pokemon cards. He then pulled out a knife.
“I wasn’t going to argue with him.
The man reportedly got around £ 100 from the cash register, plus a box of Pokémon cards.
Police are now appealing for help with the investigation.
As such, they have posted photos of a man they would like to talk to, including a photo of a distinctive tattoo on his hand.
It is believed that he may have information that could help their investigations.
