Appeal for witnesses following an attempted burglary in Crowthorne

Alert message sent 26/09/2019 15:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted burglary in Crowthorne.
 
At 7.20pm on Wednesday 25 September two white men, both described as been aged about 30, 5’11” and slim, were captured on security CCTV in  the enclosed rear garden of an unoccupied property in Bramley Grove.
One man approached and looked in through the ground floor windows, until his accomplice spotted the security camera at which time both men made a swift departure. There is no indication of how they entered the garden or whether they had any vehicle.
 
Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident, have further CCTV or Dashcam recording, or any other information to either call our 24 hour enquiry centre on 101, or submit the detail On-Line via the reporting portal on the force website quoting reference 43190298179.
 
If you don’t want to speak directly to police you can contact “Crimestoppers” anonymously and free of charge on 0800 555 111. It is an independent charity, no personal details will be asked for, calls are not recorded or traced and you would not have to go to court.
 
You can greatly reduce the risk of burglary by taking a few simple security measures to help make your property less attractive to thieves.
Most burglars are opportunists and target homes and businesses that offer the least risk of been caught, firstly.
Ensure front and rear doors locked.

Ensure windows shut when you’re out

Keep access gates closed and locked to prevent easy access to the rear of your property.

Keep valuables and keys out of sight from doors and windows.

As the nights begin to draw in, use a timer switch to turn lamps on to make your house look occupied even when it isn’t.
