A store owner said she was ‘sickened’, after falling victim to shoplifting again.

Jo Watson, who owns Buckingham childrenswear boutique Dandy Lions had CCTV cameras in the shop following a spate of thefts earlier this year.

In May, thieves raided her store, on Cornwall Place, in the middle of the night, stealing £700 worth of upmarket Hatley children’s raincoats and pyjamas by hooking them out through the letterbox.

And in August, Mrs Watson had £200 worth of her new season’s stock stolen from under her nose by brazen shoplifters on two occasions.

Now shoplifters have struck at the store again, with a Mayoral boxed babygrow being taken.

Mrs Watson told the Advertiser: “I’m sickened by it all, to be honest. I don’t know what to do next.”

Police have released a CCTV image of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the shoplifting incident.

A police spokesman said: “At 11.05am on Tuesday, November 11, a woman entered Dandy Lions shop in High Street, Buckingham, and removed items from the shop without attempting to make payment.

“If anyone can help to identify the woman in the image, please contact PCSO Unita Hopkins via the Thames Valley Police 24-hour enquiry line 101.”
