Travelodge burgled in Salford

Police have issued the image of a man they would like to speak to following a burglary at a Salford hotel.

On Sunday 24 November 2013, a man walked into the Travelodge on Blackfriars Street and leant over the bar area. He grabbed a pair of scissors and opened the till before he made off with a small amount of money.

On Saturday 4 January 2014, a man tried to commit the same crime using the same technique but made off empty handed.

Police Constable Ben Longworth based at Pendleton Police Station said: I would ask anyone who may recognise the image of the man or who were in the Travelodge on these dates and may have seen someone acting suspiciously, to contact police.

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 5235 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
