Caught in the act: Man recorded breaking into van in Lincoln

A man who has been caught red handed during a van break-in in Lincoln now has a £100 reward over his head.

Captured on CCTV by van owner Nev Otter, the video of the man accused of stealing a laptop computer has been shared by over 1,600 people on Facebook.

The theft reportedly occurred at around 7.30am on July 25 on the Allenby industrial estate in Lincoln.

Nev Otter resorted to a Facebook appeal for the identity of the man caught on camera, offering £100 for the return of the laptop or a name.

Lincolnshire Police confirmed that they are aware of the footage being shared on social media and are currently looking into the allegations.
