POLICE want to speak to this man who was reported acting suspiciously at the scene of a burglary.

The man is wanted for questioning following a break-in on Bournemouth Park Road, Southend, after residents reported he was seen acting suspiciously in the street on Friday. An e-fit of the man’s face was then produced.

Thieves forced entry to the property sometime between 10am on Friday and 6.40pm on Saturday by smashing glass in the rear back door to get in.

Once inside, a search of the property was made and jewellery including necklaces, brooches, bangles, earrings and a lady’s silver Gucci watch with a navy square face have been stolen.

The man is described as white, aged 30 to 40, of slim build, and around 5ft 10in tall. He had short hair and was wearing a high visibility jacket. He may also have been in the company of another man and woman.

Anyone who believes they recognise the man in the e-fit is asked to call DC Kerry Auger at Southend CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
