Watchfield Burglaries

There were two burglaries on Watchfield High Street on Monday 3rd January 2014 between 11.30am and 4.40pm. Access was gained by throwing bricks through the rear windows and jewellery was stolen from both properties.

There are many unfamiliar people in the village at the moment. If you see suspicious activity please call the police. If you see anyone in a suspicious vehicle please note the registration number, description and time and report to 101, or 999 in an emergency.

Make sure your property is secure at all times. Try not to leave wheelie bins or other items near fences making it easier for burglars to gain access to the rear of your property. Keep your garages and outbuildings locked. If you would like home security advice please contact the neighbourhood policing team via the 101 number.
