Police ask for help to find Bedford burglar


A Bedford man, wanted in connection to burglary offences, is being hunted by police and they want your help tracking him down.

Graham Pinsent, 51, of Goldington Road is described as white, slim and approximately 5’9’’. 

While a local resident in our area, he also has links to Luton. 

Detective Constable Andy Boston of Operation Maze, who are searching for him said: “We are asking for the public’s help in locating Pinsent as we would like to speak to him in connection with a burglary.

“If anyone knows of his whereabouts and is assisting him in any way, you may be at risk of committing a criminal offence.”

If you see Pinsent, police say you shouldn’t approach him and instead call 101 immediately.

You can also call this number if you have any information, quoting incident number 52 of 16 February. 

Independent charity Crimestoppers, can also be contacted anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
