Whitby police have released images of a man suspected of burglary following a theft from a hotel in the town.
It occurred at the Resolution Hotel, Skinner Street, at around 11am on Saturday 31 August 31.
The suspect walked into areas of the hotel not open to the public before trying to open a till and stealing money from a tips jar behind a bar.
He is described as white, with a medium build and short dark hair. At the time of the burglary he was wearing a white baseball cap, a light long sleeved top, dark trousers and dark trainers.
PC Ian Foley, of Whitby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you are the man caught on camera and you are not responsible for this burglary and theft, I urge you to contact the police so that I can eliminate you from my enquiries.
“I also need to speak to anyone who recognises the man and ask they get in touch straight away.”
Anyone who can help to identify the suspect is asked to contact Whitby police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Ian Foley. Alternatively information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
