PUBLISHED: 09:16 19 June 2018 | UPDATED: 09:18 19 June 2018

Detectives are appealing for information following a burglary in Bromley and have released CCTV footage of a man they wish to identify.

Officers were called at approximately 5.15pm on Tuesday, May 15 to reports of a burglary having taken place at an address on Bromley Road.

The homeowner discovered the burglary when he arrived home and found a rear window left open.

Jewellery was stolen as well as a silver Mercedes that had been parked on the driveway of the property.

The CCTV footage shows that at 12.13pm, suspect one drove to the property in a blue Mercedes before smoking a cigarette and walking into the victim’s driveway for approximately 30 seconds.

It’s then believed that he got back into the car and drove off towards Shortlands train station.

At around 12.22pm, the suspect returned to the premises on foot with another man who was wearing a grey tracksuit.

Both males then enter the address and leave a short time later in the victim’s silver Mercedes in the direction of Shortlands station.

DC Chris Taylor from Bromley CID said: “This appears to be a premeditated and calculated burglary in which various items of high value jewellery was stolen from the victim home as well as a car worth approximately £25,000.

“I urge anyone who was in the area the time and witnessed two men acting suspiciously to get in touch.”

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to call Bromley CID on 101 quoting CAD 6174/15May, tweet @MetCC, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
