CCTV footage has been released of two men police wish to speak to in relation to the brazen theft of computer equipment from an Aldi supermarket in Melbourne’s northeast on New Year's Day.
Police say the pair walked into the store in a shopping centre in Bundoora at about 3pm on Sunday, January 1. Video released on Monday shows the two allegedly sliding computer monitors worth more than $650 dollars under the security gates to the supermarket.
“Investigators were told the men pushed the boxed monitors under the entry gates to the store and left them unoccupied,” police said in a statement.
“The men walked past the checkout and each collected a monitor from the floor and left the store.”
Police have released the video and images of the men in the hope someone may recognise them.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Employee's brave act against machete-wielding robber
Last month a Queensland shop worker foiled an attempted armed robbery.
CCTV footage captured the moment a masked man burst into a Rockhampton shop, wielding a large machete in one hand and a grey sack in the other.
But as he moved towards the counter, a chair is suddenly flung through the air, striking the offender and causing him to run back out the door empty handed.
