Police Investigate Snaith Burglary
4:29pm 21st March 2013
A burglar used a plant pot to smash the glass in a back kitchen door and force entry to a detached house in Gowdall Lane, Snaith.
The incident happened between 1150hrs and 1345hrs on Monday 18 March.
The offender went through the house and carried out an untidy search but was disturbed by the occupants arriving home.
The man ran down the stairs, barged past the woman and ran out of the house onto the front driveway where he brandished a crowbar at the woman’s partner before making good his escape, getting into an old shaped Vauxhall Astra estate car that was parked outside in the street and driving away.
The burglar, described as a white man, aged mid 20s, approximately 6ft tall, clean shaven and with a broad build, is thought to have made off empty-handed.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to log 321 of 18 March 2013 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
