Reward offered for suspected Baldock burglar

A POTENTIAL �1000 reward is being offered to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of an 18-year-old fugitive.

Felix McCann is wanted in connection with a distraction burglary which occurred in Baldock last year in the home of an 89-year-old woman.

The distraction burglary occurred in May 2009 when a man entered the house of the elderly lady, searched the property whilst she was in the front room and took her handbag, which contained some cash.

Detective inspector Gerry McDonald, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s dedicated distraction burglary investigation team, said: “We’ve been making enquiries into the whereabouts of Felix McCann for some time now and it is at this point that I am appealing for members of the public to help us.

“We believe Felix has links with the traveller community and I am directly appealing to them for their help.

“Distraction burglary is an appalling crime and we know that no one would harbour a person who may have committed a heinous crime against a vulnerable person.

“If you believe you know where Felix is, please make contact with police, or alternatively you can call Crimestoppers where your details will remain anonymous.”
