A thief walked into Ely's Woolworths store and grabbed an £80 trampoline surround in full view of the shop's CCTV cameras.
The shoplifter, dressed in a yellow shirt with black trim on his collar, was filmed walking out of the shop with the giant box and setting of the store's alarm system.
Just 40 minutes later he was back, with a black jacket over the top of his distinctive shirt, to steal a £40 children's bike, carrying a huge box containing the bike out of the store.
Ten days later, the store was hit again by a shoplifter who chose an £80 portable paddling pool from the display and walked out.

He was about 6ft tall, well-built, in his 20s or early 30s, and wearing a red and yellow striped shirt, jeans and white trainers.
Police, who have checked the store's CCTV footage, are not ruling out the possibility the same man could be responsible for both incidents.
