Officers investigating a theft from a vehicle in Ferndown are issuing a CCTV image of the suspect.
At around 4am on Sunday 14 November 2021 a car that was parked on Library Road was broken into.
A new padlock and key – which was going to be returned to store by the owner – was stolen.
Police Community Support Investigator Kate Hann, of East Dorset police, said: “As part of my enquiries I have obtained a CCTV image of the suspect.
“I fully appreciate the image is not of the best quality, but I am hoping someone may recognise him from the clothing and mask he is wearing.”
