Officers investigating a theft have released an image of a youth who they would like to speak to in connection with their investigation.

On Friday, March 23 at around 11.50pm two people entered the garden of a property on Southcroft Avenue in Alfreton and stole a wheelchair commode.

This was later found abandoned down the road.

PC Sean Davies said: “This is not the first time that this lady has been targeted so we are keen to catch those responsible. We believe there may have been two people involved.

“I would like to trace the youth in the image as I believe he may be able to assist with my enquiries.”
