Call for wit­nesses as po­lice link three home break-ins

Thames Val­ley force seek to as­sure res­i­dents a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion is now un­der­way

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The lat­est in­ci­dent hap­pened at around 7.30pm last Wed­nes­day night (Jan­uary 6) in Orchehill Rise, Ger­rards Cross.

Three men tried to break into the ad­dress, how­ever they made off in a car af­ter they were dis­turbed by the oc­cu­pants. A sim­i­lar in­ci­dent oc­curred the pre­vi­ous night on Tues­day (Jan­uary 5) at an ad­dress in Ham­p­den Road, Prest­wood.

On this oc­ca­sion, the oc­cu­pant heard a noise in­side her home and found two men who then fled.

It is be­lieved that the men got into the prop­erty via a back door, and that a third man may have been in­volved in the bur­glary which took place at 7.20pm.

Again, the of­fend­ers made off in a ve­hi­cle. Noth­ing was stolen.

On Mon­day, Jan­uary 4, 24 hours prior to the in­ci­dent in Prest­wood, po­lice were no­ti­fied of a bur­glary in Ashcroft Drive, Den­ham Green, which took place at 7.45pm.

In this in­stance, three men broke into the prop­erty and car­ried out a messy search. They made off af­ter be­ing dis­turbed by the own­ers who had re­turned home.

One is de­scribed as 5ft 8ins, late 40s to early 50s, of slim build with a thin face.

His ac­com­plice was slightly taller, just less than 6ft, and of stocky build.

The third man is de­scribed as 6ft broad, with big arms. All three wore dark cloth­ing and fa­cial cov­er­ings.

Det Sgt Liz Tait, of Lo­cal CID Taplow, said: “I would like to re­as­sure all res­i­dents that a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way in re­la­tion to all three in­ci­dents in or­der to try and ar­rest those re­spon­si­ble.

“The na­ture of th­ese bur­glar­ies is un­usual in terms of the sus­pects wear­ing bal­a­clavas or face cov­er­ings.

“At this time, we have sev­eral lines of en­quiries in hand. How­ever, we would urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion for­ward as pos­si­ble.

“Any piece of in­for­ma­tion, de­spite how triv­ial it may ap­pear, could as­sist our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Det Sgt Tait can be con­tacted via the 24-hour Thames Val­ley Po­lice en­quiry cen­tre on 101.
