Appeal for information following burglary dwelling – Buckingham
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a burglary of a dwelling in Buckingham.
The incidents happened between 7.30pm on Thursday (29/6) and 9pm onwards on Friday (30/6) in Waine Close, Buckingham.
The victims left their home around 11am to go to work, leaving windows and doors locked with the alarm set. Around 7.30pm the victims received a phone call from a neighbour advising that their alarm had gone off. On arrival they discovered entry had been gained via a rear ground floor window and the dining room had been searched. The offenders left with large amounts of cash via the same window after activating the alarm.
The following evening at around 9pm the alarm was activated again whilst the victims were at work. A neighbour reacted to the alarm and saw a man walking from the victim’s house down the road, the neighbour called out and the man ran. A further two men ran from the victim’s house in the same direction, one carrying a small drawer under his left arm.
The neighbour spotted a grey Audi, which he did not recognise, parked opposite and drove off with the registration beginning AP08.
The victims discovered entry had been gained via a different rear ground floor window and a messy search of the master bedroom had been made, resulting in jewellery being stolen.
The first offender is a man with a short or medium build, wearing a dark hat and dark clothing with a scarf pulled over the lower part of the face.
The second offender, who was carrying a small drawer, is a white, quite tall male. He was wearing a beige coloured peaked cap with a beige hoody and light coloured skinny jeans. He also had his face covered by a black scarf.
The third offender was also male, wearing dark clothing and shorter than the second offender.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Carolyn Bailey, of Local CID, based at Aylesbury Police Station, said, “The victims involved are repeat victims in a burglary, as this happened on two consecutive evenings.”
“We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed either of the incidents or recognises the description of any of the offenders to contact the Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.”
Thames Valley Police advise that high value items should be kept in a hidden safe and to prevent easy access to the rear of the property, any side gates should be kept locked when not at the property. For further advice please visit the crime prevention advice pages.
