A WOULD-be thief who wriggled and ripped his way out of his shirt to escape capture for a daring supermarket trolley dash is being hunted by police.

The offender and an accomplice walked into the Asda store on Old Mill Lane, Barnsley, and proceeded to fill a trolley with goods including household items and food.

But instead of then heading to the checkout to pay for their items they left the store with their trolley full of goods.

When a security guard tried to stop them, by holding one of the men by his shirt, the suspect ripped his way out of his top and fled the scene.

Security guards chased after both men, but the pair managed to escape.

Police today issued stills from CCTV footage at the supermarket which showed two men officers want to trace.

Both are white, around 5ft 8ins tall, 18 to 25 years old, slim, with short brown hair.

One was wearing a turquoise T-shirt with yellow piping on the collar and sleeves, and the other wore a dark hooded top with an orange logo on the front.

Anyone with information about the incident, on March 25, should call South Yorkshire Police on 0114 220 2020.
