A GAMES console was snatched from a Jaywick home after crooks forced open the front door.

The house in Tamarisk Way was broken into while the owner was out.

The lock on the front door had been forced and an X Box and games were missing.

It happened between 9am and 9pm on Thursday July 31.

Police are hunting for the culprit and want to speak to anyone who has been offered electrical gear for sale recently.

Investigating officer Det Con Roger Henderson said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area or who may have been offered the items for sale in suspicious circumstances.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
