Leicestershire Police has released CCTV footage of a burglary at a forecourt shop in an attempt to identify one of the offenders.

At around 4am on 25 January, police believe three suspects broke into the BP garage in Wanlip Road, in Syston, by forcing open a window.

Once inside the building they attempted to prise open the cigarette cabinet but failed and instead left the scene with a quantity of alcohol.

The investigating officer, police constable Claire Cobain, said: “One of the suspects’ faces is seen on CCTV and we are issuing his image in the hope that someone will recognise him and contact us with information.

“If you think you recognise the man in the image or know who was responsible we would like to hear from you.”
