Police appeal following Handsworth Wood burglary
Police have released footage of four men wanted for questioning following a burglary in Handsworth Wood.
During the early hours of 15 February, the gang of four were captured on camera sneaking over a fence into the garden of a property on Silvercroft Avenue.
They broke in via a back door and crept around the house, stealing cash and jewellery as the 85-year-old woman, who lives at the address, slept upstairs.
Detective Constable Chris Warren-Smith said: “To the lady’s complete horror, she woke up to discover people had been in her house while she slept and stole her prized possessions. She’s understandably traumatised by what’s happened.
“Footage recovered from a nearby CCTV camera, shows the suspects clambering over a fence into her garden. One has a particularly distinguishing haircut which I’m confident someone will recognise!
“Any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the offenders would be gratefully received."
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 20BW/36801V/18.
