Appeal for witnesses after a burglary – Pitstone
Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following a burglary in Pitstone.
Last night (Sunday 26th to Monday 27th June) offenders got into a house on Cheyne Close by the front door. Once inside they stole a purse and contents, along with vehicle keys.
They then stole a blue BMW from outside the property, which is still currently outstanding.
Det Con Bruce Wilson from Aylesbury Local CID is investigating this crime. He said:
“A neighbour was woken up by their dog barking and the sound of a car engine around 2am, so this may have been the time of the burglary.
“I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around this time to contact me.
“I would also like to remind residents to double lock doors and windows. If you have uPVC doors make sure you pull up the handle and turn the key, to engage the 5 point locking system.”
Further crime prevention advice and information can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.
If you have any information please contact Det Con Wilson on the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.
If you don’t want to speak to the police or give your details you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report it online. No personal details will be taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not have to go to court.
