EFit Appeal: Bogus Police Officer Burglary, Bradford

Thursday, 11 October 2018

Police investigating a burglary in Bradford have released an e-fit image of a male they would like to identify. 

The incident happened at about 4.30am on 18 September, when two males attended an address in Braybrook Court.

They told the occupant they were police officers investigating a crime and required entry to his property.

One of the males waited with the occupant while the other searched the address and removed items, which they said they were taking as evidence.

The victim later received a call from his bank to inform him of fraudulent activity on his account.

Both suspects were wearing dark clothing and are described as Asian.

One had dark hair which he wore in a ponytail. He was also wearing a black jacket.

Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford District CID, said:

“If you receive a visit from someone purporting to be a police officer, then please request to see their identification card.

“All police officers, even those not in full uniform, should be carrying these.

“If you’re still not sure then take their details, their collar number and internal extension number and close the door, before calling 101 to check their identity.”

Anyone who recognises this male or believes they can assist the investigation is asked to contact Bradford District CID on 101, quoting crime reference 13180466458.

Information can also be reported anonymously by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
