Did you witness a burglary in Ashton-under-Lyne?


Police are appealing for witnesses after a Mercedes was stolen during a burglary in Ashton-under-Lyne.

Two men burgled the home on Newmarket Road about 7pm on Thursday 7 March 2019.

No one was inside the house at the time but thieves stole a white 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet, two watches and cash.

The car was found the same day on Marion Street in Oldham where the offenders were witnessed getting into a white Mazda6 saloon.

One of the thieves is described as white, wearing light coloured jogging bottoms and a dark coloured bubble jacket. He wore a light coloured woolly hat underneath his hood and a small bag across his body.

Officers have released an image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the burglary.

Anyone who recognises the man pictured, or has any information about the incident, should contact police.

Information can be given to police by calling 0161 856 9262 quoting incident number 1889 of 07/03/2019.

Alternatively, information can be passed on to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
