Do you know these men? Police appeal after spate of car key burglaries in Staffordshire
Police are appealing for help in tracing two men after a spate of car key burglaries in south Staffordshire.
Three cars were stolen when seven houses were targeted between 11pm on September 13 and 7am the following day.
Burglars broke into a house in St Francis Close, Hednesford, to steal the keys to a blue Audi A5 S Line Black Edition before driving it away. The same people are also believed to have stolen keys and driven away a black Mercedes 220 at Templars Way, Penkridge.
A white Audi A5 S Line Black Edition was also stolen after its keys were taken from a house in Turner Grove, Perton. And further attempts were made to enter four other houses in the Penkridge and Hednesford areas that night.
Entry in all the cases was made by snapping door locks. The men police want to trace were wearing hooded tops and are believed to be between 18 and 25 years old.
Detective Inspector John Quilty, of Staffordshire Police, said: “We’re seeking the public’s help to identify these men and pursue our inquiries.
“We want to remind people to check their security and ensure that car keys are kept out of sight. We’re working hard to crack down on these offences and would welcome any information the public can share with us.”
Anyone with information about the identity of these men or the offences should contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 104 of September 14 or Crimestoppers anonymously on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
