Burglars hit Barnt Green high street

Posted on September 27 2013 at 11:52:42

Police are appealing for information about two burglaries in the high street through Barnt Green.

One happened in Greenbank between 9.45am and 12.45pm on Tuesday, 24th September, when the offenders forced the front door, causing £50 damage.

They took two Samsung TVs, one a 46 inch flatscreen model worth £600 and the other a 40 inch flatscreen model worth £200, along with an Apple iPad 3 worth £600, a Toshiba DVD player worth £100, a Samsung laptop worth £300, a Tag Heuer silver watch worth £3,000, a set of Mizuno golf clubs and bag worth £450, a Powakaddy electric golf trolley and battery worth £380,  and a white gold diamond ring worth £1,000, which was specially made and one of a kind.

The other burglary happened between Friday, 20th September, and Wednesday 25th September, in Hewell Road. Again the front door was forced, probably with a kick, causing £200 damage.

Two Samsung TVs, one a 40 inch LCD mode worth £400 and the other a 28 inch model worth £300, were stolen, along with a black Dell laptop worth £500.

Police are appealing for anyone who can help identify the offenders, or saw or heard anything suspicious at the time and would also like to hear from anyone in the relevant area who has CCTV.

Residents are reminded that burglaries remain low in West Mercia, and most are carried out by opportunistic thieves rather than ‘professional’ criminals who are looking for the easiest way of getting into a house without being seen or disturbed.

Householders are urged to be vigilant and to report any suspicious people or vehicles. Police also want to reiterate that doors and windows should always be locked when the house is left unoccupied, valuables should not be left on show, and details can be placed on the national property register at www.immobilise.com

Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact Detective Constable Tony Flannagan on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 279-s-240913 for Greenbank or 379-s-250913 for Hewell Road, or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
