Barnt Green home raids linked

Two Barnt Green homes were targeted by burglars on the same afternoon and police believe the incidents may be linked.

The first was on Mearse Lane between noon and 3pm on Tuesday (15 July) when it seems the thieves managed to gain entry to the house but then did not steal anything.

In the second incident it appears thieves unsuccessfully tried to break into a property on Plymouth Road in the same area some time between 1pm and 5pm.

A police spokesman said: “Officers investigating these incidents are keeping an open mind as to whether any of them are linked but will clearly be looking at the possibility that the same offender or offenders are responsible for some of them.

“We would also like to remind people to do all they can to ensure their homes are secure when they go out, even if only for a short time, and also remember to report any suspicious behaviour or activity they see in case it is linked to criminality.

“Meanwhile, anyone who believes they may have information is asked to call officers in the Burglary Unit in Redditch on 101 or 0300 333 3000 as soon as possible.

“Alternatively, please remember Crimestoppers can also be called anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you’d rather leave information without identifying yourself.”
