The first incident took place shortly before 5.30pm on December 8 in Acle New Road, Great Yarmouth.

A member of the public was approached by a man in a white Vauxhall van and offered a number of televisions which appeared to be new and in their original boxes.

The man claimed that a friend of his had been "laid off" from a well known electrical store and needed to sell the items.
