Police are hunting a man in connection with the alleged theft of more than 250 of Apple’s new mobile phones on the day that they went on sale.

Officers said they wanted to speak to Usman Sethi, a 23-year-old, assistant at an O2 shop in Wimbledon and released an image of him today.

The phones were taken in the early hours of yesterday morning, along with some cash from the safe.

Mr Sethi is described as Asian, 6’1” tall and may be driving a grey Ford Mondeo.

Police also want to speak to Mr Sethi, a Pakistani national, in connection with the theft of jewellery belonging to a family member from his home address in Audley Gardens.

The theft came on the morning that the smartphones, the iPhone 5, were due to hit shelves for the first time.
