Two offences are alleged to have taken place at a large shop in Newtown Retail Park.
During the first on 12 January, a man was reportedly observed on CCTV taking £300 worth of cleaning and protein products from the store without paying for them.
The second of these incidents on 18 January involved a man allegedly being challenged on exit from the store by the security guard, resulting in the alleged discovery of air fresheners and other laundry items which had not reportedly been paid for.
