Police issue e-fit in Telford house burglary probe

Police are keen to talk to the man about a burglary that occurred in Horsehay in October. The incident happened at an address in Spring Village on Tuesday October 23, between 7.10am and 3pm. Police said it appeared a stone or brick was used to smash a rear window.

The burglars then reached in through the smashed window and opened it to gain access.

Once inside the house the burglars carried out a thorough search before stealing a gold ladies watch worth about £400 and about £800 in cash before escaping.

Detective Constable Charlotte Ford, who is investigating the incident, has released this e-fit image of a man she would like to identify as part of her investigation.

DC Ford said: "According to a witness who lives near the property that was burgled, the man featured in the e-fit was in the area on the day of the burglary and was offering window cleaning services to local residents.

"This man was seen approaching the house that was burgled on the day in question and therefore we are keen to identify and speak to him so we can ensure he is not involved in this break-in.

"Anyone with information about this incident, or who believes they may be able to identify the man in the e-fit, is asked to contact police in Telford on 101 or 0300 333 3000, quoting incident number 435S 231012."

Witnesses can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 if they would rather leave information without getting directly involved.

West Mercia Police has launched Operation Citadel, a new initiative to cut the number of house burglaries in the area.
