POLICE have launched an appeal to track down the suspect pictured right after a brazen thief stole 10 packets of bacon from a South Yorkshire supermarket.

The thief was captured on security camera entering McColl’s Convenience Store on Doncaster Road, Stairfoot, Barnsley.

And after picking up the packs he attempted to hide them by putting them down the front of his trousers.

But the culprit was caught by the CCTV cameras which film customers’ movements as they come and go.

Officers now want to identify and speak to the man who appears in the footage. Police believe the mystery man could help with their investigation.

The thief was a white male, around 5ft 7ins tall, aged between 18 and 20 years old, and of a slim build.

He was wearing a dark-coloured polo shirt with an England football team badge on it.

Police say the incident happened at around 9pm on Friday, June 3.

The pictured man, or anyone who might recognise him, should call police on 0114 220 2020 and ask for Barnsley Intelligence.

Anyone who gets in touch should also quote the incident number BX/85/2011.

Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
