A BURGLAR was disturbed in the middle of a break-in.
The offender used a spade taken from the back garden shed of a home in Holt Close, Wickham, which he used to try and pry open the back door of the house.
But a neighbour who heard the noise at around 2.30pm on May 15, went out and shouted at him, scaring him off. Nothing was taken.
He was white and appeared to be of eastern European origin, and around 50.
He had a slight, wiry build and was about 5ft 8in.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
