Police are appealing for public assistance following a number of thefts from a Sunbury pharmacy in September.

The first incident occurred at an Evans Street pharmacy about 8.20am on September 18.

The offender walked into the store and selected a number of items and then walked out without paying.

The second incident occurred on September 28 about 12.30pm.

On this occasion, according to police, it’s believed the same man entered the same store and concealed a number of items under his jacket and left the store without paying.

He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, tall with a skinny build and short dark hair. Police have released images of a man who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Anyone who recognises the man or who may have information about the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au
