He went into the elderly man's house in the village of Cliffe near Selby, while he was asleep on Monday.

CCTV shows him searching through the victim’s belongings and trying to cover up the CCTV cameras before he left with the victim’s Apeman wildlife digital camera and two Blink home security cameras.

It is absolutely appalling that this vulnerable elderly man has been targeted in his home four times since April this year.

There were two burglaries as recently as August, where on both occasions the suspect has used the ATM at Sainsbury’s in Selby to take out cash from the victim’s account.

We remain determined to do everything we can to bring those responsible for these offences to justice and we are asking for the public’s help to identify this burglar to hopefully prevent a further occurrence.”

– Investigating Officer PC Tony Morton of North Yorkshire Police
