SERIES OF BURGLARIES IN SEAFORD
January 26 2012
Homeowners in Seaford are being encouraged to ensure their doors and windows are locked following a spate of burglaries in the town.
Officers are currently investigating five incidents where offenders have broken into properties - or attempted to - to steal jewellery and electrical items.
The first burglary took place between midday and 5pm on Friday, 13th January, at an address in Grove Road. The offender smashed the back door and went into the house and stole jewellery.
The second happened four days later, Tuesday 17th January, just after 1am when two people were disturbed trying to enter a house in Avondale Road.
The next took place the same day but occurred between 9.15am and 5.40pm in Kedale Road. The offender smashed the back door and entered to steal a jewellery box.
The fourth incident took place at East Albany Road between 15 and 20 January. In this case, burglars broke into a property and stole two clocks.
The final crime happened between 21 and 22 January in Vale Road when electrical items were stolen. The
offenders gained entry via an insecure door.
Detective Constable Dave Styles said: "We can't rule out the possibility that all five of these crimes are linked and would like to hear from anyone who has information, or who thinks they may have seen something or someone suspicious in the areas at the relevant times.
"This is also an opportunity to remind homeowners to always ensure that doors and windows are locked and secure, and to improve their security wherever possible.
"Anyone with information can contact me via the non-emergency number, 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
