CCTV footage has been released by police after an elderly man’s home was burgled.

The Press reported in October how John Rhodes’ home in Poppleton was targeted by an intruder - and the raid was caught on his son’s live CCTV feed.

The image David Rhodes saw when he looked at the screen was a man in camouflage trousers, a hat and black jacket.

David believed his father was asleep upstairs after returning from a relative’s funeral in Stratford.

He phoned 999 and drove over to his father’s house, but his father had not arrived home and the intruder had gone.

North Yorkshire Police say officers have carried out extensive enquiries to identify the man, including meeting with neighbouring police forces, but he remains unidentified.

The burglary happened on October 11 last year and a large amount of jewellery was stolen from the house.

Anyone who can help police identify the man is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 or phone 0800 555 111.
