A MASKED thief was filmed potentially trying to break into a home on Paddock Lane in Redditch on Thursday, September 24.

The man, who looks to be in his late 30s or early 40s, was recorded acting suspiciously outside the home by a camera doorbell.

In the video uploaded to Facebook, the thief can be seen ripping off the doorbell with a tool at 7am.

The owner of the property said: “He also checked our door handle. By the time I got downstairs to the open the door, the camera bell was already removed.

“He took the whole casing with him so I doubt he left any fingerprints.

“Honestly I would recognise those eyes if I see him again.”

The door bell stolen was brand ‘Ring’ which costs around £100.

This lovely gentleman checked our door handle this morning (7 am)! By the time I got downstairs to open the door, the Ring bell was already removed. Paddock lane. Police was informed. If anyone recognizes this man or his jacket etc, please get in touch.
