By Thomas Parkes | Tipton | Crime | Published:

CCTV footage has been released after four men burgled a house in the Black Country.

Police want to identify this man

The thieves climbed over the fence of a house in Central Avenue, Tipton, before smashing the back door window and gaining access.

They fled with jewellery and personal items after the raid on March 6 at around 12.40pm.

Two teenagers, aged 17 and 19, were arrested after an appeal was launched earlier this year.

The 17-year-old from Kingswinford, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was later convicted of burglary.

WATCH the footage here:

He was handed a 100month Detention Training Order, but the investigation still continues – with police releasing footage of another suspect.

The clip shows a man, in green jogging bottoms, approaching the house and ringing the doorbell shortly before the break-in.


Anyone who recognises him is asked to contact the force via live chat at between 8am and midnight, or by calling 101 anytime.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Quote crime reference 20SW/55745E/19.
