Burglaries often take place when an opportunistic thief spots a ripe opportunity to seize some valuable goods from a less-than-secure home.

But for one crook, his rationale was a lot simpler – he wanted to spite the police.

‘Nothing personal, I hate police men and women’, was the brief scrawl left on the kitchen table of a home that was burgled on Boxing Day.

The burglar broke into the ground floor of the house in Nottingham by smashing a window before getting away with cash, jewellery and an iPod docking station.

The brazen note was scrawled across the table in blue biro, and all of the taps in the home were also left running.

Nottinghamshire Police have released the note in a bid to identify the handwriting of the suspect.

They have also confirmed that the victims have no links to the police.

A force spokesman said: ‘Officers are appealing to anyone who may recognise the handwriting or if anyone has any information that could help to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident 325 of 27 December.

‘You could also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.’
