Police have released CCTV footage in a bid to identify a man who broke into a home and stole two televisions.

Between 3.45am and 4.20am on Sunday, July 30, the man entered a home in Mackerye End, Harpenden and searched inside, before taking two large screen LED Samsung televisions.

One of the televisions was later recovered about 30 yards away from the property.

Detective Constable Paul Edmondson, who is investigating, said: “I am appealing for the public’s help to identify this person and I would also like to speak to anyone who believes they may have seen the offender acting suspiciously in the area either on the night of the burglary or in the days leading up to it.

“If you have been offered a large Samsung television for sale in suspicious circumstances I would also like to hear from you, as you may have vital information that can assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Edmondson on the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference F2/17/1457
