Belvedere burglary leads to police appeal

PUBLISHED: 12:43 11 October 2012

A burglary in Belvedere has sparked a police appeal.

It happened in Lower Road on Tuesday (October 9) after two men had reportedly been knocking on doors in the street the previous week asking residents if they needed any building work.

Police think the same two men visited the house of an elderly couple and forced entry to the house to steal jewellery and cash after there was no answer at the door.

Det Insp Steve Goodhew said: “We believe the pair burgled this home because they thought the occupants were out. The victims were shaken by the incident but not harmed in any way.

“The suspects are both white men, described as being between 30 and 40 years of age. They were seen to get into a white van, believed to be a Ford Transit or Luton style van.”

If anyone has information call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
