Beverley raid: Police issue image of third wanted man

Police have today (May 21) issued a CCTV image of a third man they want to speak to in connection with a burglary at High Rice Jewellers in Saturday Market, Beverley, in the early hours of Monday November 4th last year. Jewellery to the value of £25,000 was stolen in the raid.

The police investigating the raid have always said three men were involved and the still image (see right) is of a suspect still at large.

Two men are awaiting sentencing for their part in the break-in. Following an eight day trial at Hull Crown Court last week, Ian Billany, 39, of Morpoth Street, Hull, was convicted of burglary and an armed robbery at a Newland Avenue bank in Hull three days earlier.

Lee Rose, 38, also of Morpoth Street, admitted robbery and burglary in relation to the same incidents. Both will be sentenced at a later date.

The court heard that during the bank raid, Billany and Rose wore horror clown masks. The pair then went on to raid the Luxe jewellers in Beverley’s Saturday Market, believed to be with a third man. The pair drove to the jewellers in a stolen BMW, fitted with false plates.

A spokesman for Humberside Police told us: “If you think you can help us identify this man, please call us on 101, quoting incident number 16/56744/18.”
