Lickey burglary appeal

Posted on July 06 2012 at 7:57:14

Police are appealing for information following an attempted burglary at a house in the Lickey Hills.

Two men were seen by the householder trying to get into her property on Warren Lane, just before 9am on Wednesday, 4 July.

The men had approached the rear of the house, which backs onto the Lickey Hills Country Park, and lifted up one of the fence panels in order to get into the garden.

The pair were then seen trying to open the patio doors, which were locked. Upon being spotted by the householder, the men ran back into the country park in the direction of the visitors centre.

Detective Constable Tony Flannagan from Bromsgrove CID said: “One of the men who tried to get into the house is described as white, in his early 20s, 5ft 8ins tall, of a slim build, with short dark hair, and a long, pointed nose and face.

He was wearing a black hooded top and blue jeans. The second man was also wearing a black hooded top but there is no further description of him.

“Thankfully, the patio door was locked and the men were disturbed by the householder, leaving the scene empty-handed and without causing any damage.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have been walking in the park in the area of the visitors centre and may have seen two men matching this description, to contact us.

“I would also be keen to hear about any suspicious vehicles seen parked in lanes surrounding the country park at around the time of the incident.”

Anyone with information about this incident can call Det Con Flannagan on 0300 333 3000, quoting 97S 040712 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
