CCTV appeal following burglary at mobile phone shop in Leyland

We have released CCTV images of a man we would like to speak to following a burglary at a mobile phone shop in Leyland.

The burglary happened at around 3am on Friday, September 2 when a man broke into Casetronix, Towngate. He took a number of iPhones and Samsung Galaxy devices from the shop before leaving the scene in a dark coloured hatchback vehicle which was being driven by a second person.

It is believed that the car could have links to Blackburn and Preston.

PC 2120 Rik Nicol said: “This was a high value theft which will no doubt have an impact on the independent retailer who serves the local community. We are keen to speak to the man pictured in connection with the burglary and I would urge anyone who recognises him or who has any further information about that could assist with our enquiries to contact us.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting crime reference SC1605579.
