Do you recognise this man?

POLICE have released images of a man they would like to speak to after a care home was burgled more than two months ago.

Entry was forced at Church View care home on Church Street, Kimberworth, at around 3am on Thursday, Feburary 28, causing damage to a window, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said.

"It is understood that the suspects removed a safe from the premises, which contained bankcards and money belonging to care home residents," said the spokeswoman.

"One of the bankcards was later used numerous times between 3am and 9.35am on February 28."

Police believe the man pictured could hold vital information and are appealing for him, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch. 

Officers are also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard suspicious activity around the care home overnight between Wednesday, February 27 and Thursday, February 28.

Please call 101 quoting incident number 108 of February 28. You can also give information to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
