IS this you?

Police are trying to trace the owner of a digitial camera seized during a raid in a home in Benfleet.

Officers executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at a home in Summerwood Close on September 19.

A 29-year-old man from Benfleet was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and drugs offences and was released on bail until January 7 pending further enquiries.

However, police have still been unable to establish the owner of a digital camera which was seized and have released two photos in the hopes of tracking them down and reuniting them with the stolen camera.

Anyone with information should contact Dc Donna Hindle at Southend CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

How bizarre that the Echo have run this story twice and print pictures of people without their permission and in connection with a crime thus perpetuating the idea that they are somehow involved! And since the police have arrested the person who stole the camera what purpose is served by finding it,s owners other than to give the camera back.?

No its to find a connection to a theft/burglary...so they can connect the arrested to the stolen Item and make a firmer case against them, i don't see where they are suspecting the people on the camera with any crime.

I am inclined to agree about these photographs. Whilst it is perfectly legal to take photographs of anyone in a public place, as long as you do not cause a nuisance by picking on any individual and repeatedly obstruct them or obstruct their free passage. The reporting of people taking pictures of kids in public places has led to some very sick happenings, including murder by burning recently and people should be aware of the dangers they cause when complaining about perfectly innocent picture-taking.
However, these photos are of people who are not known, are seemingly not in a public place and they could cause trouble if seen by someone else who may not be aware of these "Couples," more especially if they are, for instance, not related to one another or such!

You all still going on about this? It was solved this morning on the Canvey facebook page. The owners have contacted the police to get their camera back and I hope the naughty boy that took it gets a good telling off by the police.

So if it were stolen in a burglary, who reported a digital camera missing or are the police so useless that folk don't even bother report burglaries any more?
