POLICE have issued an appeal for help to catch a man who broke into a house in Essington.
Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the Wolverhampton Road area, near the junction with Brownshore Lane, at around 2.30am on Saturday, July 26 or who may have seen someone riding a pedal cycle at the time.
The offender gained entry through an insecure door and stole a handbag, wallet and two mobile phones. The burglar also searched the householder’s car using the keys taken from the house.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting Staffordshire Police incident number 270 of 26 July.
