Press release   •   May 21, 2019 11:16 BST

Do you recognise this man?

We would like to speak to him about a burglary which took place in Fareham.

Between 4am and 4.30am on Tuesday 23 April, a house in Magdalene Way was broken into and a handbag and a set of car keys were stolen from inside.

A silver Ford Fiesta was subsequently stolen from the driveway, but this has since been recovered by police.

Officers want to identify the man pictured so we can speak to him as part of this investigation.

If you know him, or have any information about this incident, please call 101, quoting 44190139151, or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

We would also like to take this opportunity to offer some burglary prevention advice:

  • Your home is only as secure as its weakest point of entry. That’s why it’s so important to have doors and windows that are as secure as possible
  • Simply shutting the door won’t prevent burglaries. Double-lock the door every single time you leave the house
  • If you have high value items such as jewellery, watches, passports, credit cards, computer data and identification documents, you may want to consider storing them in a safe
  • Burglars tend to target windows as they generally offer easier access than doors. Keep them locked, and take a good look at your windows from the outside, removing potential access points where you can. Are there walls, bins or garden furniture that could be used to reach windows?
