CCTV released following pub break in Stanwell
Surrey Police has released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in relation to a break-in at a pub in Stanwell.
The burglary occurred between midnight and 3.30am on 10 February, when two suspects have broken into The Five Bells pub in Clare Road and taken a quantity of cash after forcing open the fruit machines. They have also taken cash from the tills behind the bar.
Officers are also investigating two further break-ins at The Anchor and The Wheatsheaf pubs in Stanwell to establish whether they are linked.
One of the suspects is described as 5ft 8 tall, of a large build with dark hair, described as shorter at the sides and longer on top, and a dark beard or stubble. He was wearing light-coloured trousers with a dark belt and a dark-coloured item in the right rear trouser pocket, and a dark-coloured zip-up jacket. He was also wearing trainers with black stripes and black laces and a ski or dark-coloured glove on his left hand. The second man is described as 5ft 7 tall, of a thin, muscular build with very short hair or a shaved head. He was wearing a light-coloured zip-up jumper with the hood up and covering his face and a light-coloured scarf across his mouth. He was also wearing light-coloured trousers, dark trainers with a light-coloured trim and gloves with reflective stripes.
PC Blair Elborough, who is investigating the incident, said: “We are making a number of enquiries to establish whether these break-ins are linked. They have all taken place at pubs in Stanwell and all involve the theft of cash. On two occasions, a bottle of Baileys has been consumed or removed from the scene.
“We have released the CCTV images of two men we would like to speak to in the hope that they might come forward or that someone may recognise them and tell us who they are.”
