Faces of wanted con artists and thieves have been released by police.
They hope the public can help identify the criminals from the CCTV images and help solves crimes.
These latest images, released under the identify initiative, include people suspected of theft, fraud and shoplifting.
The crimes featured are:

• At around 6.30pm on Tuesday, August 7, three men went into a supermarket in Sheep Street, Cirencester. It is believed they took numerous bottles of champagne and spirits from the shelves - worth a total of more than £400 - and left the store with them without paying. Crime number 19143/12 refers.

• On the evening of Wednesday, August 15 a couple pulled into a petrol station in Cricklade Road, Cirencester, in an Audi car. The man got out of the vehicle and filled up with £50 worth of fuel. The woman went into the shop, however did not pay for the fuel and they then both left. Crime number 19682/12 refers.

• On the evening of Friday, August 17 a man went into a shop in Rosebery Road, Dursley, and asked the shop assistant for some change. He had £200 in notes and asked for it to be changed, firstly into £10 notes, then into 10 pence pieces. On two occasions the assistant went to a store room to check the change levels in the safe, but eventually said she could not help him. He then got angry and asked for his money back, and in the confusion he managed to take an extra £60 from the assistant. This is being treated as fraud. Crime number 19939/12 refers.

• On the afternoon of Saturday, September 1, two men went into a supermarket in Stow on the Wold. They selected a number of items, worth over £300, which they put in their trolley.
