POLICE have released a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with a burglary in Wigan.

At around 1pm on Thursday (Feb 5), the offender approached a property on Shevington Moor, Standish, and knocked on the front door.

Fortunately, the quality of the CCTV image is very good and we believe there will be someone who will be able to recognise and identify this man to us

After making sure the house was empty, the man walked round the house to the back garden and smashed a conservatory window so he could climb in.

Upon entering the house, however, the alarm went off and the burglar fled empty-handed.

PC Zac Fraser said: “The offender may have run off without stealing anything, but we believe he may well attempt something similar again soon.

“Fortunately, the quality of the CCTV image is very good and we believe there will be someone who will be able to recognise and identify this man to us.

“I would appeal to anyone who recognises him to contact me on 0161 856 7124 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
