  • Appeal for information regarding a delivery scam in Hatfield

Police have released an image of a man they are looking to identify following an attempted delivery scam in Hatfield.

A resident in Hatfield received a package containing an iPhone 12 that they had not ordered. They contacted the company that despatched the device and was told it was a scam and to not hand the device over to anyone. At around 3.20pm on Wednesday 6 January, a man called at the address asking for the iPhone. The resident refused and the man left empty handed.

PC Chloe Tomkins who is investigating, said: “We are appealing for witnesses and information about this incident. The person pictured was in the area at the time of the offence and may have information that could assist in the investigation. If you recognise the person in the photo please get in touch, I appreciate the image is not the clearest, however if you know this person you may recognise them or their clothing from it.
