CCTV appeal following burglary in Bridport

Officers investigating a burglary in Bridport are issuing CCTV images of the suspect.

At around 1.30am on Thursday 9 August 2018 a break-in occurred at the Bridport Bowling Club in Priory Lane.

The offender forced entry by smashing a window and carried out a search of the premises. A wine bottle was knocked over in the kitchen, causing staining on the floor. It is not believed anything was stolen.

The incident was captured on CCTV at the bowls club.

Police Constable Sam Verity, of Bridport police, said: “We have carried out a number of enquiries to identify the man captured on the CCTV but these have so far proved unsuccessful.

“I am now issuing these images in the hope that someone might recognise him and would urge anyone with information about his identity to contact me.”
