POLICE have released an image of a man they would like to speak to after two defibrillators were stolen.

At 4.30pm on November 27, it is alleged that a defibrillator located in an outdoor cabinet at Barnsley Town Hall was stolen. A short time later it was reported that a second defibrillator was also taken from outside Harris and Co accountants on Huddersfield Road.

Sgt Steph Coverley said: “These defibrillators were paid for as a result of fundraising by the local community and they can prove vital in saving someone’s life should they suffer a cardiac arrest.

“We have carried out extensive enquiries so far, including the review of both public space and private CCTV at numerous locations within the town centre but we still need additional information to help us track down the person responsible.

“We would really like to speak to the man in this image in connection with the incident, we think he could have vital information about what happened.

"If you recognise him or have any other information that might help, please do contact us on 101 quoting crime reference number 14/182364/19.”
