Efit Appeal, Burglary, Wetherby

Tuesday 23 February 2016

Detectives in Leeds have released an Efit of a man they want to trace in connection with a burglary last Monday in Wetherby (15/2).

The incident occurred between 4.30pm and 5.20pm at an address on Harewood Road, where the occupant of the property, an 79-year-old man was working in his back garden.

The victim was approached by an unknown male who began speaking at length to him about re-surfacing his driveway. Towards the end of the conversation, the victim noticed a second male he had not seen earlier at the front of the property.

The suspects left the property, and a short time later the victim entered his house to find that items of property and an amount of cash had been stolen.Suspect 1, burglary, Harewood Road
