Shoeburyness: CCTV After Armed Burglary
A CCTV image has been released of a man police believe is a key witness to a armed burglary in a house in Shoeburyness.
On Monday April 9th, three men forced their way into a house on Blyth Avenue and threatened the homeowners with a handgun before stealing approximately £8,000 worth of jewellery, cash, mobile telephones and an ornamental samurai sword. They then ran off wards Delaware Road.
Investigating Officer, Ds Ian Howitt, said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for this couple who had one of their young children with them at the time. The CCTV image of the young man at Thorpe Railway Station was taken a few minutes after the burglary. This man is somebody who we would like to eliminate from our enquiries."
The three assailants are described as black, aged in their 20s, of slim build and were wearing black duffle coats and balaclavas over their faces.
Anyone with information in connection with this burglary is urged to contact detectives at Southend police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
A man who set a fire on the ninth floor of a block of flats in Southend, killing a neighbour and her unborn child, has been made subject of a hospital order.
