Appeal for witnesses after a house was burgled in Matlock.

On Wednesday, January 14 between 9.30am and 3.50pm a house on Tor Rise, Starkholmes was broken into.

Offenders have entered the house via patio doors and stolen electrical items, cash, jewellery and antiques.

Officers would particularly like further information on a white man who was seen in the area around 12.30pm who looked like he was selling door-to-door.

He was described as scruffy, of a slim build and in his 20s. He was wearing a dark coloured woolly hat, a dark coloured jacket and jeans and was carrying a rucksack on his back.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Shaun Bott at Matlock CID using the non-emergency 101 number.
