Police are appealing for information following a burglary at a house in Fulwood earlier this week.

The house in the Glencourse Drive area of Fulwood was broken into at around 6pm on Monday evening (22nd October). It is believed the offender has walked down the driveway of the house, through into the back garden and has broken into the kitchen via a rear window.

The offender has then searched the house and has taken a number of items of jewellery, as well as an Acer laptop and a black Nikon camera.

Officers have released CCTV images and are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward.

Detective Inspector Paddy O’Neill said, “The person responsible for this was brazen – he has committed this offence in broad daylight in a residential area when there would have been a lot of people about.

“We believe a number of vehicles will have driven past him as he made his way out of the Glencourse Drive and Eastway area and so I would urge anyone who may have been in the area at the time to think back, and if they remember seeing anything suspicious, to get in touch.”

“Unusually he was wearing distinctive clothing including, a leather look flat cap which had a triangular pattern on the top, grey or black hoodie with a white drawstring and grey pants.”

The man is described as being aged between 25 and 35 years of age, and between five feet eight inches and six feet tall.

Anyone with information can contact police by calling the new non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number DF1203984. Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
