Detectives investigating a distraction burglary at Crowland have issued an e-fit image of a suspect.

The incident happened at around 2.45pm on Monday, November 21, where a man walked into a property in Glebe Gardens asking to read the meter.

He then assaulted the occupant by slapping him and demanding to know if there was money in the house.


The man eventually left the property taking a number of DVDs.

Police have now issued an e-fit of the suspect.

He is described as a white male aged in his mid 30’s, around 5′ 11″ tall, of stocky build, with short cropped hair.

He spoke with an accent and was wearing a grey Bomber/Harrington style jacket, blue shirt with a collar and grey formal trousers.

He was also wearing fabric gloves and his shoes were similar in style to Dr Martens with yellow stitching around the sole.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Steve Nesbit on 101, quoting incident number 260 of November 21.
