Police have released CCTV footage of three men they want to speak to after they were called to reports of a burglary on Lodge Lane in Dagenham at 6.50pm on December 13.

Detectives believe the burglary occured at some point between 1.30pm and 6.30pm and say two safes were stolen from the property.

It is believed three men climbed onto a flat roof at the side of the property. Once there, the men used tools to break into the property.

“One of the suspects identified a camera overlooking the flat roof, alerted his colleagues and moved the camera to conceal their break-in,” said a police spokesman.
