Burglaries in Churchdown and Innsworth

Alert message sent 19/09/2019 14:26:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

There was a series of garage break-ins or attempted break-ins in the Innsworth and Churchdown areas on the night of 14th and 15th September. 

The streets effected in Innsworth were Nicolson Close where three offences were reported and Gibson Road.  In two cases valuable bikes were stolen and a selection of tools. In the other nothing was stolen

Churchdown saw Sandycroft, Pirton Lane, Pirton Meadow and Farrant Avenue effected.  Most of these crimes were unsuccessful attempts to gain entry to garages, and in a couple of cases the offenders may have been spotted or disturbed.  It seems that two male youths wearing hoodies or face coverings, and riding bikes, may be responsible for all or some of these offences.  These youths were seen at various locations between 2am and 3.40am.

The following link shows a CCTV image, circulated a few days ago, of a person the police would like to speak to in relation to the Gibson Road burglary mentioned earlier. https://www.yourcommunityalerts.co.uk/images/site_images/50877_CCTV_image.png

A house in Barrow Hill Churchdown was also entered the same night and two laptop computers were stolen.  It seems they gained entry at the rear of the house at around 1.50am.
