Colchester cops hunting 'scruffy' burglar

Essex County Standard: So you recognise burglary suspect? So you recognise burglary suspect?

POLICE have released an e-fit of a suspected crook believed to be responsible for a burglary in Colchester.

The break-in happened in Keble Close at around 3.30am on April 25.

The suspect is believed to have entered the house through an unsecure kitchen door.

He walked to the lounge door but was spotted by the householder and ran off.

A bag in the kitchen had been rifled through but nothing was stolen.

The suspect is described as white, with short reddish brown hair, around 5ft 5in tall, of slight build and in his 40s.

He was scruffy looking and wore a black zip-up fleece and black thermal gloves.

Anyone with information should call PC Andrea Ford at Colchester police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

by the looks of it he did not want to travel far either.
what about all those essex county run hostels run by social services on the corner of creffield road and inglis road go look in there.
they are always walking by in gangs spitting on the cars being really friendly.
