Main article content
Detectives have issued a CCTV image of two males who could have information that may assist with their enquiries following a burglary in Liverpool city centre.
At around 8pm on Thursday 31 March it was reported that a house was broken into on Cornwallis Street and a number of items were stolen.
Extensive CCTV and witness enquiries have been conducted, and detectives have issued a CCTV image of two males they believe could assist in their investigation.
Detective Inspector Ben Dyer said: “This burglary was a very distressing experience for the victim who was left in a state of shock when they returned home.
"Please contact us if you recognise the men featured in this image as we believe they could hold information that could be vital to our continuing enquiries.
“Burglaries can have a massive impact on the person and families affected as they have had their home invaded which is an awful experience to go through. It can often have a massive and long-lasting impact on victims.
“We also encourage people to come forward if you know anything about suspected burglary and the sale of stolen goods where you are. We’ll act on all information provided.”
Burglary offences have decreased year on year across Merseyside thanks largely to Operation Castle, an operation targeted at reducing burglaries, bringing offenders to justice, and ultimately sparing residents the anguish of being a victim of burglary.
We have a dedicated burglary team called Operation Castle, who focus on hotspot areas and particular types of burglary. We’ve seen more than 500 years in prison handed out to suspects since we launched in 2018. Every sentence handed down makes the communities of Merseyside and beyond safer from the harm, distress and inconvenience that burglary brings.
