New Burnham-On-Sea burglaries prompt fresh appeal for wanted man

Burnham-On-Sea Police have this week issued a fresh appeal for the public's help to find a wanted man as they investigate a series of local burglaries.

Two new residential break-ins have occurred over the past week in Burnham-On-Sea, when high-value items were stolen.

Police have released the photo below in the hope of finding the whereabouts of John 'Froggy' Bale as part of their ongoing investigations.

"We need to speak to Mr Bale as we believe he can help us with our enquiries into a number of house burglaries in Bridgwater, Burnham-On-Sea, Highbridge and Street," a Police spokeswoman told

"He has also breached the conditions of his Post Sentence Supervision."

Mr Bale is aged 53 and is described by Police as a white male, with a bald head and blue eyes, approximately 5ft 7” tall and of medium/slim build.

"He sometimes has a moustache, or can be clean shaven, he walks with a limp due to an injury on his left knee and often wears polarised sunglasses," added the spokeswoman.

"He has links to the Taunton, Bridgwater, Street, Glastonbury and the Burnham-On-Sea areas of Somerset."

"If you know where he is or you have any information that could help either with our enquiries, please call DS Scott Chadwick or DI Sharon Card, from the Somerset Investigations Team, on the 101 number quoting reference number 5217043577."
