Nationwide appeal to trace three potential victims of crime


Police in Devon have launched a nationwide appeal to trace three potential victims of crime.

This is part of an ongoing investigation into a series of burglaries across the country including Devon and Cornwall.

Memory cards were recovered during the investigation and detectives have released pictures of three potential victims they are keen to identify.

One of the photographs shows a man and woman who are believed to have been on holiday in Koh Sumai, Thailand, possibly in July 2012. They appear to have stayed at Hotel Bandara.

A video of the same couple in Thailand suggests they may have a Yorkshire or Lancashire accent, although they could be anywhere in the country.

The second photograph of a man, found on the same memory card, appears to have been taken on 8 June 2014.

If you are featured in the photographs, or you know who the three people are, please email [email protected], call 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, quoting reference CR/119056/14.
