CCTV footage captures night prowler ‘up to no good’ in Lincoln

Anyone who recognises him should get in touch with the police.

CCTV footage showing a man entering people’s gardens in Lincoln and apparently hiding from passers-by has been shared on social media, following reports of several attempted sneak-in burglaries in the city.

The video shows the man lurking around several houses in the LN2 postcode area of the city on the evening of August 7 and early morning of August 8.

Richard Adams, who captured the footage and posted on it on Facebook, said that he suspected the person was “up to no good” and was “clearly avoiding being seen”.

Lincolnshire Police are aware of the incident.

Inspector Steve Williamson, Lincoln Neighbourhood Policing, said: “Our local neighbourhood policing team are looking into this video, which clearly shows someone snooping around where they shouldn’t.

“If you recognise the person in the video, please give us a call, we’d like to speak to him.”

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 5 of August 8.
