Police are appealing for information following a burglary in Woodstock, on Friday (20th October 2006).
A house in Park Lane, being refurbished, was left insecure. A contractor left his car keys in the hall near the front door.
A few minutes later a man was seen driving off in the victim's car down Rectory Lane towards the A44. The car, which has not yet been recovered, is a silver Audi S3, registration W272 KFU.
A decorator working at the house remembers seeing a man loitering near the car just before it was stolen. He is white, around 6ft, slim, in his mid to late twenties, pale, with short mousey hair.
Sgt Bryan Percival, of the Priority Crime Team, said: "Rectory Lane is a quiet back street with little traffic. A person loitering should stand out and may have been remembered or recognised.
I would urge anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area at the time or who recognises the description of the offender to contact me via the Police Enquiry Centre on 08458 505 505. If you do not want to speak to police or leave your name, call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111."
