Police release CCTV after Rotherham care home break-in

CCTV stills have been released this morning after the burglary of a care home in Rotherham.

The burglary took place at the Church View facility on 28 February at around 3am, it is believed.

Police believe the man pictured in the CCTV could hold information which is vital to their inquiry.

People forced entry and caused damage to a window, before removing a safe from the premises.

The safe contained bank cards and cash belonging to care home residents, one of which was then used in the six and a half hours following the break in.

South Yorkshire Police have appealed for the man in the CCTV images, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch.

Anyone who saw or heard suspicious activity around the care home overnight between 27 and 28 February is urged to contact cops on 101, quoting incident number 108 of 28 February 2019.
