The owner of a Doncaster takeaway has taken the law into his own hands to try and find a thief who allegedly made off with cash from his shop.

Andy Milner, owner of the Yorkshire Pie House in Silver Street, took to Facebook to post CCTV images of a woman he believes may have taken staff tips from a box on the counter yesterday afternoon.

He said: “The thieves have struck again. But I can’t believe how dumb some people are.

“They were trying to be as sly as possible and carefully making sure the staff were otherwise engaged.”

He said the woman allegedly sidled up to the counter at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon and made off with a tip cup filled with loose change on the counter.

However, the incident was captured on four CCTV cameras and Mr Milner is now appealing for public help to identify the woman in the image.
