POLICE are urging people to come forward in identifying a man who was connected in a distraction burglary in South Kirkby.

The man knocked on the door of the elderly person’s house on Grove Drive on Saturday, February 19 around 7.30pm, and asked male resident if he could borrow a copy of the Yellow Pages.

The elderly man handed a copy through the door and the man left, and he then closed the front door securely. However, he later noticed that all the lights in the back of his home had been switched on, the rear bedroom window was open, and cash and a coat had been taken. The security chain on the front door was no longer locked, and the door was closed but not unlocked.

Anyone who can assist in identifying the man pictured, or has information which can assist enquiries, please contact DC Emma Childerson via 01924 293239
