Police are appealing for witnesses after a Mercedes was stolen during a burglary in Ashton last month.

The vehicle was taken from a home on Newmarket Road at around 7pm on Thursday March 7. Two men burgled the home, which was unoccupied at the time, and stole the white 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet, two watches and cash.

The car was found later the same day on Marion Street in Oldham, where the offenders were witnessed getting into a white Mazda 6 saloon.

One of the thieves is described as white, wearing light-coloured jogging bottoms and a dark-coloured bubble jacket. He also wore a light-coloured woolly hat under his hood and a small bag across his body.

Police have now released an image of the man they want to speak to in connection with the burglary.

Anyone who recognises him, or has any information about the incident should contact police on 0161 856 9262, quoting incident number 1889.

Alternatively, information can be passed on to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
