Burglaries in Rotherham – CCTV released

Detectives investigating three reported burglaries across the Wath area of Rotherham last month have released CCTV images of individuals they would like to speak to as part of their ongoing enquiries.

On Tuesday 23 January, it is reported that persons unknown burgled a property in Burman Road, Wath-upon-Dearne, between 3.15pm and 4pm.

Numerous items were taken after entry was gained via a rear window, including a bank card. Someone then attempted to use the card at a nearby cash machine.

On Friday 26 January, it is reported persons unknown forced entry to a property in Golden Smithies Lane, causing damage, between 11.45am and 12pm.

A quantity of cash was taken during the burglary.

In both incidents, the occupants were out at the time.

Officers are also investigating a third reported burglary in the area, reported on Monday 29 January.

Between 10.20am and 10.30am, an unknown man forced entry to a property in Cresswell Road, while the elderly occupants were home. The man then fled the scene upon realising someone was home. 

Police have released multiple CCTV images of men they believe hold vital information and are urging for anyone who recognises them to get in touch. At this time, officers are investigating the burglaries as separate incidents.
