POLICE have issued CCTV footage of a woman they wish to speak to after a town centre convenience store was targeted in a cyber attack.

The offender entered the Arowna Mini Market on Crown Street on Tuesday, February 12, and asked the shopkeeper to print a baby scan she had stored on a pen drive.

He eventually agreed, but now believes that the USB caused a virus to be installed on the computer – which allowed money to be digitally transferred out of his bank account.

And the North West Regional Cyber Crime Unit have now issued images of a woman they believe can assist with their investigation, appealing for information from members of the public on her identity.

Warrington Guardian:

Detective constable Dave Ashcroft said: “We would like to trace the woman pictured as we believe she may have information which could prove vital to this investigation.

“I would also warn any other businesses who are approached in similar circumstances to be vigilant, and to report any suspicious activity to police.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the North West Regional Cyber Crime Unit on 0151 777 7635 or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
