A local man was arrested and later bailed on suspicion of burglary in Lincoln this week.
The incident happened on May 20 at around 7.30pm on Scott Gardens, Lincoln.
Officers attended after reports of banging coming from a property. Police found a 38-year-old local man inside, who was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
He has since been bailed pending further enquiries.
Officers think access was gained by the offender forcing a rear ground floor window, which would have caused the loud banging in the area.
Lincolnshire Police is keen to get a bigger idea of what happened, so are appealing for anyone who heard a disturbance or saw anything suspicious to get in touch.
DC Gareth Ramsey, of Lincoln CID, said: “We have arrested one man in relation to this burglary but still need as much information as possible to try and obtain a full account of the circumstances.
“It’s probable that the offender would have made a lot of noise making their way into the property and we would like to hear from anyone who may have heard any unusual loud bangs or similar around Scott Gardens on the morning of Tuesday 20th of May.
“If anyone saw anything suspicious in the area, or saw anything that seemed odd or out of place, we would very much like them to make contact with us.
“What might seem an innocuous piece of information could very well help us build up a crime picture and assist us in ensuring the offender is brought to justice.”
Anyone with any information should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 64 of May 20, 2014.
