Appeal for witnesses following an attempted burglary in Bracknell.
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted burglary in Bracknell.
Between 12.10pm and 12.26pm on Tuesday 27 November 2018 offenders attempted to gain entry to a flat in Old Bracknell Lane East, Bracknell.
Whilst the flat was left unoccupied for a short while, the offenders used a bladed tool similar to a chisel to try and force the front door of the flat. No entry was gained.
Investigator T7449 Rhys Crowley of the Crime Investigation Hub based at Loddon Valley police station said “We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have information to call our 24-hour enquiry centre on 101, quoting reference 43180362977.
If you don’t want to speak directly to police you can contact the independent charity “Crimestoppers” anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are asked for, and your call is not traced or recorded, and you wouldn’t be expected to attend court.
At this time of year burglars like easy targets such as homes that are left in total darkness in the early evenings. You can reduce the risk of them targeting your home when you’re not in by using a simple timer switch to turn a lamp or two on as it gets dark.
