A CCTV image of a man has now been released by police after a sat nav was stolen from a car parked in Letchworth during the early hours of the morning.

Officers are investigating the incident in Oaktree Close, which took place on Sunday, September 1, at approximately 1.45am.

A suspect was captured on CCTV trying to open car doors on the street - the victim's car was accessed, and a sat nav was stolen.

Police would like to identify the man in the image, as they believe he may be able to assist with their investigation.

PC Alex Ward, who is investigating, said: "We hope to talk to the man seen in the images as we believe that he was in the area at the time of the incident, and that he may have information that could assist with our enquiries.

"We are aware that this isn't the clearest CCTV footage, but we're hoping that someone may be able to recognise him - please get in touch if you do."
