CCTV pictures have been released of a woman police are keen to speak to in connection with allegations of fraud.
A woman had her purse stolen in Cafe Rouge, in Durham, in September last year, with the bank cards subsequently used there and in other locations, including Barclays Bank, in Darlington.
The suspect is described as aged 45 to 50, about 5ft 4in and of slim build.
She has straight, dark, shoulder-length hair and speaks with a Scottish accent, believed to be Glaswegian.
Anyone with information is asked to call Durham Police, on 101, or Crimestoppers, on 0800-555-111.
