Large safe containing thousands of pounds taken from a house in Castle Bromwich

PC Ian Akehurst, from Solihull police station, has released CCTV footage in a bid to identify two suspected burglars after a property in Castle Bromwich was broken into last week.

The suspects climbed onto a flat roof and smashed an upstairs window to gain access to the property on Lyndon Close sometime between 5PM and 7.40PM on Wednesday 2nd November.

A large safe containing thousands of pounds was ripped out of a wardrobe and stolen.


CCTV cameras at a neighbouring house captured two men, thought to be the suspects, walking down the road before leaving 45 minutes later wheeling a suitcase.

PC Ian Akehurst, said: “We are following numerous lines of enquiry but have now released CCTV footage and are appealing for the public’s help in tracing these two people.

Were you in the area at the time? Did you see anything suspicious? Or has someone you know recently come into a large amount of money?

I’m keen to hear from anyone who has information about the burglary, or who believes they know the identity of the suspects.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Ian Akehurst by emailing or call 101.
