Officers investigating a high-value theft from a business in Alfreton want to speak to this man in connection with the incident.

The theft occurred between 6am and 6.15am on Friday, October 16 and involved a blue Toyota Avensis drove into Clover Nook Industrial Estate. The driver and passenger left the vehicle, entered a business and took eight high value specialist furnace parts called retorts.
The pair placed the retorts in the car and rammed the gate of the industrial site in order to make their getaway.
