Doing the food shop on a stolen card… Do you know who this man is?

27 Sep, 2016 15:45 News

Surrey Police is asking the public for help in identifying the man featured in these CCTV images – we want to speak to him in connection with a distraction burglary at a residential property in Mytchett.

At around 9am on Friday, 16 September, it is reported that a woman gained access into elderly lady’s home. It is believed that she had entered a room to the rear of the property and some bank cards were taken.

The woman is described as being white, in her late 30s, of slim build and around 5ft 4. She also had short, dark wavy hair and was wearing a light coloured shirt.

One card has been reported to have been used on the same day of the burglary (16 September) at a shop in Ash Vale by the man, as seen in the CCTV images.

PC Colin Campbell said: “This incident has really upset the victim who is in her eighties and left her feeling scared in her own home.  

“Luckily, after confining in her neighbour, this was reported to the police and her cards were cancelled.

“We are now doing everything we can to track down the woman who is reported to have entered the property.

“We also want to speak to the man in the CCTV images who we believe could hold vital information into solving this incident.”

Anyone who recognises the man from the CCTV or who has information which might help identify and locate him or the woman is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45160081288 or by using the online reporting system found at https://my.surrey.police.uk/splonlinereportingweb. Alternatively the independent charity Crime stoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
