Police are appealing for help in finding a burglar who stole cash and a large amount of alcohol and cigarettes from a Gomersal convenience store.

The burglary happened earlier this month on Spen Lane.

The burglar broke into the property through a back door sometime between 10pm on April 5 and 6am on April 6.

Detective Constable Cath Lowdon, of Dewsbury CID, said: “I would urge anyone who was in the area and noticed any suspicious behaviour to make contact. Given the quantity of items stolen, it is possible a vehicle was used by those responsible, so anyone who saw items being loaded in to a vehicle or a vehicle driving off at speed are urged to get in touch.”

“Anyone with information is asked to call Dewsbury CID on 101 Crimestoppers on 0800 555111."
