The pair are alleged to have targeted Booths supermarkets in Penwortham and Garstang on Tuesday, May 28.

Police said the pair had filled a trolley with food - including pizzas, cheese, chocolate and cat food - before hiding bottles of spirits underneath their shopping.

They then brazenly left the store with the trolley-full of food without stopping to pay at the check-out.

Police said the pair are believed to have carried out a number of "supermarket sweeps" across the North West recently.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: "Officers in Garstang would like to know who these hungry shoppers are.

"Trying to hide numerous bottles of spirits under pizzas, cheese, chocolate fingers, Milky/ Mars bars and cat food on their supermarket sweep before they made off in a green Ford Fiesta.

"It appears you cover all the good stuff then just head for the door. Tills not included in this supermarket sweep!"
