An alert goes out to local retailers to be vigilant for 3 males who have been stealing from Blantyre shops.
This follows after 3 males in their mid 20’s to early 30’s were in Lloyds Pharmacy in the Technology Park at 3pm and bizarrely stole quantities of sun tan lotion and other sun products. This wasn’t just one or two bottles, it was a few shelves, blatantly stealing the products into large shopping bags. Their tactic being to try to distract staff.
The incident left staff shocked and police were called. Later in the day around 4.30pm, they same 3 men tried again in the Lloyds Shop on Glasgow Road but were observed and the lowlifes headed off towards the junction of Station Road.
The descriptions given to police are as follows, “One male was tall, skinny with dark hair and unshaven. The other 2 men, both were medium height and build, shaved head and unkept looking.”
The Chemists would hate to think of these idiots targeting other businesses. Meantime, anyone suddenly being offered quantities of sunscreen products called Solero, which is Lloyds own brand, be aware.
