Police CCTV appeal after thief smashes car window and steals bank cards

A CCTV image has been released by police in Rotherham of a man they want to trace in connection with criminal damage and theft from a vehicle.

Police said a man was believed to have smashed the windows of a car parked in Bradmarsh Business Park, Rotherham, at 6am on Saturday and also stole bank cards.

Just an hour later, the suspected thief is reported to have used the stolen cards in several contactless transactions to a total value of £40 at two shops on Bawtry Road and Brinsworth Lane.

A police spokeswoman said: "Enquiries are ongoing but officers are keen to identify the man in the image as he may be able to assist with enquiries."

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting investigation number 14/140070/20, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
