Lake Tekapo Police are pleading with the public for help in finding a brazen thief who walked into a business dressed as a courier before making off with a large sum of cash.

The unknown female was caught on CCTV entering a business wearing an NZ Couriers jacket around 4pm on Friday, June 14.

She is described as aged in her mid-to-late 20s with shoulder-length brown hair, of medium build and, along with the jacket, she wore black Nike shoes and black trousers.
