Laptops Stolen During Daytime Burglary In Bewdley

November 28, 2012, 1:36 pm

Police are again reminding residents to be on the look out for any suspicious activity during the day after another daytime burglary in Bewdley.

It happened between 7.55am and 7pm on Monday, 26 November, near Gloucester Way and follows two other daytime burglaries in Sandbourne Drive and Crundalls Lane a week ago, on Monday, 19 November.

On this occasion thieves stole two silver laptops worth £450 in total and a red Sony mp3 player worth £200 which was in a red floral case.

PC Adrian Bartlett from Kidderminster CID said: “While there is nothing to suggest these burglaries are linked we are of course looking into the possibility.

“As this is a daytime burglary we are hoping someone may have noticed the burglars hanging around the area and we are eager to hear from anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around Gloucester Way.”

Witnesses or anyone with information about any of these burglaries should contact PC Bartlett on 101, quoting incident 547-S-261112, or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

A force-wide initiative called Citadel has been launched recently by West Mercia Police which is aimed at driving down the number of burglaries. It involves the deployment of a range of operational tactics to catch burglars and a targeted crime prevention advice campaign.

At this time of year when it can still be quite dark during the day a well-lit home gives the impression that someone is in. Householders are advised to invest in timer switches to turn lights on while they are out.

There are many simple measures which can help lower the risk of your home being burgled and more advice is available on the force website at http://www.westmercia.police.uk/.
