Police issued CCTV stills yesterday of a man who allegedly stole a handbag outside Fergburger in Queenstown.
Sergeant Kate Pirovano, of Queenstown, said a woman's handbag was taken in an opportunistic theft outside Fergburger in Shotover St at 4am on Tuesday.
The CCTV stills showed a man of medium build walking off with a large, studded bag.
He was described as European, unshaven, with a widow's peak hairline, wearing light-coloured jeans and a dark hoodie with a circular print on the front.
"He was seen on cameras on Camp to Man St looking through the bag. It just goes to show you need to keep property with you," Ms Pirovano said.
The handbag was recovered, but its contents were missing and police want the public's help to identify the man.
Police also want to speak to a woman who was outside Fergburger at the same time on Tuesday.
She was wearing a dark-coloured outfit, a cap and was carrying a white bag.
Meanwhile, a 23-year-old man was arrested and charged with disorderly behaviour outside Buffalo Club in Brecon St on Wednesday.
He was ejected from the bar after "acting the goat" in front of female patrons.
