Phone thieves fled a shop in Bishop's Stortford with four devices worth £2,500 after distracting staff.

The theft happened at I Mobile in Potter Street at around 1.45pm last Wednesday (Nov 24). Three iPhone 11s and an iPhone 12 were snatched.

PC Derek Lewin, of the town’s Safer Neighbourhood Team, said officers were examining CCTV footage.

“Two males entered the store enquiring about purchasing an Apple iPhone. Two other males have then entered and accused one of the men of stealing from his girlfriend,” he said.

“They [staff] quickly realised that it is a distraction and attempted to get all four iPhones back, but the men then all ran out the store, making no attempt to pay.”

A £500 Samsung phone was also stolen from Sainsbury’s in Jackson Square at around 6pm the same day after a customer left it behind at a checkout.
