Police would like to speak to this man after a burglar broke into a home in Wavendon Gate and stole various goods before a failed attempt at credit card fraud.

The burglary took place between 7.30am and 6.40pm on Wednesday, February 25, in Gaddesden Crescent, Wavendon Gate.

An offender forced entry through a rear kitchen window and stole cash, credit cards, a Toshiba laptop, Fujifilm camera, Nokia phone, iPod, sports clothing, aftershaves and watches.

An offender then attempted to purchase a MacBook Pro laptop, two LG 49in LED TVs and an iPad Air over the internet using the stolen credit cards.

A man then attended Argos in Grafton Gate, Milton Keynes, on February 26 to collect the items, but the order was cancelled by the Argos fraud department and the man was unable to pick up the items.

The man shown in the CCTV images is white, in his twenties, 5ft 4ins to 5ft 6ins, skinny, with short dark brown hair. He had a Liverpudlian accent and a Liver bird tattoo on the left side of his neck.
