CCTV image released as police investigate burglary in Leigh

Police are investigating a burglary in Leigh and are hoping this CCTV image might jog someone’s memory.

A man climbed into a flat above an off-licence in London Road at around 9.25-9.30pm on Saturday June 27.

He was disturbed by one of the occupants and escaped via the window with a four figure sum of cash.

He was last seen walking off down London Road.

Just before the burglary, the suspect had got out of the passenger’s side of a car parked in Sydney Road.

The CCTV image is of a man officers want to speak to in connection with their investigation. He is described as white, tall and of skinny build. He wore a grey jumper, light grey trousers, black shoes, dark gloves, a dark face mask and a baseball cap.

There were a number of people in the area at the time and they may have information that could help with enquiries.
