Security camera footage shows the moment a woman took a Pandora bracelet intended as a Christmas present while she queued for food in a Northampton McDonald’s.
The item had only just been bought from the Pandora store in the Grosvenor Centre on Saturday, December 12.
After making the purchase, the man who bought it went into the nearby branch of McDonald’s in the centre to buy some food.
However as he left the queue, he left his bag containing the bracelet on the counter.
A woman who had been queuing behind him then took the bag.
The woman, who was caught on camera taking the bracelet, was white, with brown hair and is believed to be aged between 30 and 40. She was wearing a red quilted coat.
