Just received this press release from Walsall Police. Burglary, thankfully, isn’t a terribly common crime in Brownhills, so lets see if we can keep it this way. We’re clearly not dealing with the sharpest arrows in the quiver, so these fellows shouldn’t be too hard to identify. Please, it could be your house next. If you can identify any of these chaps, contact either Walsall Police or Crimestoppers. Cheers.
CCTV IMAGES RELEASED
POLICE in Walsall have released CCTV images of four people they would like to question in relation to a burglary in Brownhills.
The burglary occurred at a house on Albion Road, Brownhills on Thursday 21 April between 8am – 12.50pm.
Thieves forced the back door of the property, before stealing a computer, music system and building material worth an estimated £1,300.
The CCTV images were recovered from a second hand dealer in Walsall, which shows the four men selling what has been identified as the stolen computer.
They are described as white, in their late teens – early twenties with short dark hair. One man was wearing a distinctive blue and grey hooped jumper, with another man wearing a black baseball cap and dark jacket.
Police are appealing for anyone who can identify the men to contact them on 0345 113 5000.
DC Perminder Matharu, from Walsall CID, said: “After extensive enquiries we have been able to identify a stolen lap top computer which was taken into a local second hand dealership. We are hoping that the four men shown on the CCTV images can help us with our enquiries and are appealing for them to come forward.
If anyone can help identify these men, we would be extremely interested to hear from you. Please be reassured that any information that we receive will be treated with the upmost confidence.”
