Detectives investigating a burglary in Garston are appealing for witnesses and information.
On Thursday February 11, at around 10.50pm, police were called to an address in Coates Way to reports of a house being broken into.
Officers attended, along with a police dog unit. Upon arrival, they found the rear doors of the property open.
An untidy search had taken place, but it is not believed that anything was stolen.
A police helicopter was deployed to conduct an extensive area search, but at this time offenders have not yet been identified.
The offenders were described as two men, both around 5ft 7ins to 5ft 10ins tall.
One was wearing a white jacket with a hood up, and the other was wearing a black face mask with a black jacket, which also had the hood up.
DC Julie Vint, who is investigating, said: “Thanks to a vigilant member of the public calling us after witnessing suspicious activity, we were able to get to the scene before they could cause significant damage or steal any property.
“I know that some time has passed since the date of this incident, but we have exhausted all other lines of enquiry and are now asking the public for their help.
“If you live nearby and recall seeing two men behaving suspiciously in the area on Thursday February 11, particularly between the hours of 10pm and 11pm, or if you believe that you may have witnessed the incident taking place and have not yet spoken to us, please get in touch.
“I would also like to request that anyone who lives in Coates Way that has a CCTV system fitted to their property please review the footage for that evening, in case you may have captured anything that may help to progress this investigation.”
