Main article content
Detectives investigating two reported burglaries in Teynham have released a CCTV image.
On Monday 3 July 2023, a man called at an address in Station Road and advised the resident he was there to check the smoke alarms.
He was allowed into the address and, after he left, the occupant found a quantity of cash was missing.
On the same day, a pensioner also living in Station Road, was visited by a man who said he had been sent to check the electrics at the premises. Once the man had left the victim found their purse had been stolen.
Detective Constable Emma Laimbeer, of the Kent Crime Squad, said: ‘We have been investigating these incidents, including the examination of CCTV footage in the area, and are now able to release an image of a man we would like to identify. ‘We are urging anybody who recognises the person or has information that may assist our enquiries to contact our appeal line.’
