“The community must report suspicious people who sell second-hand goods without any receipt or proof of purchase or ownership.”

What dealers must do when buying items from the seller:Obtain the seller’s full name, contact details, home address and a copy of an identity document and keep it for the period of five years.Get the signature of the seller and the date and time of the transaction.

The incident is believed to have occurred on Saturday-Sunday 29-30 June or early hours of Monday 1 July, as the owner noticed his shop had been burgled at the end of business on Monday.
