A brazen couple have been caught on CCTV shoving a £11,000 guitar into a coat before casually walking out of a shop.
The crystal-clear footage shows the man and woman enter Peach Guitars in Colchester, Essex at about 4pm on February 20.
The man can be seen plucking one of the instruments off the wall before putting it inside the women’s coat and walking out.

Footage of the theft has been shared over 6,000 times after the shop uploaded it to Facebook on Tuesday.
