Police have released an evo-fit of a man they would like to trace following a burglary in Preston.

Around 5.30pm on Tuesday 14 June, a man gained entry to a house on The Cloisters in Ashton.

He searched the property and left in possession of a quantity of money, a man’s gold plated watch and a man’s gold ring.

He was seen leaving the property by a local chemist who was making deliveries in the area at the time.

He is described as white, around 30 years old with a round face. He was wearing a light blue or grey puffer type jacket with loose black puffy trousers and a brown leather glove on his right hand.

Police are appealing for anybody with any information to come forward.

DC Daniel Greene said: “I would appeal to anybody who was in the area at the time of the burglary who thinks they may have seen a man matching the description to contact police.

“I am also keen to speak with anyone who thinks they recognise the man in the evo-fit, even the smallest amount of information could be crucial to us finding who is responsible for this crime”.

Anybody with any information is asked to call police on 08451 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
