Lancaster police hunt car thief after burglary on Balmoral Road

Police are appealing for information after a car was stolen following a sneak in burglary at a house in Lancaster last month.

At some time between 8.00pm on10th November and 8.00am on 11th November, the offender entered a house on Balmoral Road through an unlocked rear door and went into the kitchen and took car keys and a mobile phone.

The offender then left by the same door and stole a Silver Seat Ibiza (registration KM08 PNZ) that was parked on the street in front of the house.

Also in the car were a number of items of horse riding equipment including tack and clothing.

Detective Sergeant Fiona Jackson said, “If anyone has any information at all about this theft or if anyone has perhaps seen the car then I would ask them to come forward and contact us.”
