Ilford CID have released CCTV images of two burglary suspects.

This follows a home owner in Warwick Gardens disturbing two men who’d forced entry and fled through a window.

They escaped across the back garden on Tuesday evening 29th December.

The police were called at around 9.15 pm.

Detectives are appealing to the public to help identify the suspects or for any information that could assist their investigation.

Detectives are asking anyone who was in the area of Warwick Gardens around the time of the incident and saw anything suspicious to contact police via 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In March 2015 Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan Howe suggested that CCTV cameras should be installed by homeowners and businesses to help police solve crimes.

The government’s surveillance camera commissioner, Tony Porter, has recently issued a camera code of practice.

And he’s published a guidance briefing for the installation of Domestic CCTV.

He’d previously warned:

The use of surveillance camera systems within domestic environments continues to grow. The cost of domestic CCTV systems is minimal as electrical retailers now sell HD domestic CCTV systems for a little over £100. This upsurge in domestic use is directly responsible for an increase in complaints around their use.
