DETECTIVES are hoping the release of an efit of a man suspected of committing two burglaries in Grays will lead to his swift arrest.
The first break-in happened when the man forced open the front door of a house on Dock Road near to its junction with The Willows during the lunchtime period of Friday, March 8 and stole a quantity of electrical items and jewellery worth approximately £2,000.
The second break-in happened on Bull Close shortly after 3pm on Sunday, March 10 when the man and an accomplice forced their way into a flat. As yet, officers have yet to identify a victim and so do not know what, if anything, was stolen.
Investigating Officer, Dc Clive Day, said: “We would urge people to take a good, close look at the efit and the description provided. He has the appearance of a doorman.”
The man pictured in the efit is described as white, in his late 30s, approximately 5ft 4ins tall, of stocky build, has a round face, has little hair and has three white marks on his face. At the time, he was wearing a navy coat, navy trousers and sporting a support bandage on his right hand. He was carrying two carrier bags, coloured pink and white.”
Anyone with information in connection with this burglary or who recognises the men in the efit or descriptions provided is urged to contact detectives at Grays police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
