Please find below details of the currently reported burglaries or attempted burglaries to residential properties (including shed break-ins) over the last period (03 June 2020 – 12 June 2020). Summary details of these are provided in the list below.
Please note, where known we have used the approximate actual incident date/times rather than date the incident was reported (as there can be differences).
08 June 2020 (18:30). Broomsquires Road. Offender(s) wearing balaclavas have smashed rear glass patio door. They were disturbed by the homeowner as the first offender was crawling into the premises and offender immediately exited the property via the smashed door and is believed to have exited the garden by jumping over the back fence. A black BMW 3 Series had been seen outside the premises 10 minutes before the incident happened. It had raised suspicions with a dog walker, who has taken a photo of it.
08 June 2020 (16:30). Star Post Road. 5 males were seen to go down the driveway at the side of the house and enter the unlocked garden shed. Nothing appears to have been stolen. On their way out the males were confronted by a neighbour who asked what they were doing. Males replied they were painters and decorators and they showed paint materials in the back of their van. The neighbour asked them why they were in the garden and the males got angry and drove off.
08 June 2020 (02:45 – 04:36). Coleford Bridge Road. Suspects have gained entry to the property through the rear patio door and taken a bag (containing bank cards) and car keys from the kitchen. Suspects have then stolen a Black Nissan Navara from the driveway.
