Appeal to trace broken leg bandit
Police in Dudley are on the trail of a would-be burglar with a broken foot or leg. Can you help us track him down?
Officers investigating an attempted break-in on Ridge Road, Kingswinford are appealing to trace a leg-brace wearing bandit who was caught on camera during the incident last Wednesday (21 November).
He’s filmed alongside another three men using a drill to successfully snap open a PVC lock at 11.35pm. But the group were disturbed and ran off down Kingsley Road.
The homeowners reported the incident to police just before 1am, and it quickly became apparent that one of the suspects had a somewhat unusual feature.
Officers have now released the footage of the suspected crooks and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Do you recognise any of the people in the footage? Perhaps you know someone who’s been wearing a foot brace recently? If you think you have information which could help progress this query please get in touch.
