Police have released a CCTV image after a string of burglaries took place over three hours in Blackley.

Between 2am and 5am on Tuesday 18 July , a man burgled two houses and attempted to break into another 15 on Broomhall Road. He also stole one car and attempted to take another four from houses on the street.

At one house, the man forced his way through the back door of the kitchen and let the owner’s dog out. The man then made his way through the house, taking items from every room, before fleeing in a car.

Police have released a CCTV image and are appealing for anyone who recognises the man or the clothing he’s wearing to come forward.

Police Constable Gary McKendrick of GMP’s City of Manchester borough, said: “After their homes were ransacked, the locals have been left devastated by the barrage of burglaries committed in just one night.

“I’m hoping that someone recognises the man or the clothing he’s wearing in the CCTV image. I’m urging anyone who may have information to help our investigation to get in contact.”

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 3923, 101, quoting incident number 0270 of 18/07/17, or Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
