Farnley: Police issue efit of suspected burglar

22 February 2017

Police have released an e-fit image of man they want to identify following a burglary in Farnley. 

The man smashed a panel in the front door of the house in Tong Road and climbed through while a female suspect waited outside. He searched every room in the house and stole jewellery and iPhone 4S. 

He was described as white, aged in his late twenties to early thirties, 5ft 8ins tall, medium build, with acne scars on his face. He was wearing a leather jacket and dark jeans. The woman was described as white, early to mid twenties, 5ft 6ins tall, and skinny. She was wearing a white knitted hat, a dark coat and was carrying a large shoulder bag.

Detective Constable Gemma Coulton, of Leeds District Crime Team, said:

“The victim has lost a number of items of jewellery with significant sentimental value and is understandably upset about this. We would like to hear from anyone who recognises the suspects from the e-fit and the descriptions or who saw this pair in the area. 

“We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered any of these distinctive items of jewellery for sale.”

The burglary happened shortly before 8pm on Wednesday, December 28.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC 3991 Coulton at Elland Road via 101 quoting crime number 13160756538 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
