A SURPRISED resident disturbed a would-be burglar during an early morning break-in.
Police are appealing for information about the incident, which occurred on Friday at a house in The Tanyard, Bassingbourn.
The home-owner came downstairs at about 7am and discovered the male offender in his living room, causing him to drop a computer screen run off into the garden and away from the house.
Nothing was missing from the home.
Detective Constable Andy Bates, who is investigating the incident, said: “This burglary happened first thing in the morning and the offender is likely to have been seen as he made off.
“I would urge anyone who recognises the description to call police.”
The offender is described as white, in his teens, small build and was wearing a blue hooded top, a dark cap and black gloves.
Anyone with any information should call DC Bates on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
