Basildon Recorder: Do you recognise this man? Do you recognise this man?

POLICE want to know if anyone recognises this man in connection with a Basildon burglary.

A house in Waldringfield was broken in to between 11pm on Sunday, February 16 and 6am on Monday, February 17, and a woman’s handbag was stolen.

How did this 'man' (looks like a woman to me from that shot) manage to use the bankcard in a cash machine?

Lucky guess on the PIN?

instant thoughts.. it looks like an unattractive woman in the shot provided, the PIN was obviously kept with the card, many do that.

When I was sent down for burglary, my burglary was actually done in Basildon. We stole £500, 2 rings, and a watch. Only got caught because next door got suspicious and called police. What a grass!!
I thought gangsters dealt drugs and pimped hoes?

Well that narrows it down to 400,000, if it is from Essex, as opposed to an Eastern European import...

It looks like the term spent was not enough to encourage a change to the normal persons thought pattern

Any parasite that breaks into someones home should have a lethal injection. Pond life cockroaches that don't deserve to breath air and they are in the same list as peedos and rapists and child batterers . DEATH should be the only sentence given. I guarantee by making the sentence legal it would eradicate all house breaking dross.
