Police have released CCTV images after a burglary at a Preston home.

The daughter of the occupant of a home in Avenham Court invited two men she had met earlier that day into the living room, believing she was buying cigarettes from them.

The men then went into one of the bedrooms of the house and stole a 26 inch flat screen television.

The incident happened at about 12pm on May 26.

PC Hanif Patel said: “The occupant’s daughter has naively invited these men in believing they had good intentions.

“If anyone has any information about this incident I would ask them to get in touch.

“I would say to the public to let this serve as a reminder not to invite strangers into your home.”

Anyone with information can contact PC 3442 Hanif Patel on 01257 246267 quoting incident reference 848 of May 26. Alternatively, call 101.
