Bur­glar: I’m in the wrong house

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

FURNITURE worth thou­sands of pounds was stolen from a home in Mag­a­zine Road, Ash­ford, as the own­ers slept.

One of the oc­cu­pants was dis­turbed by a per­son in their bed­room at 5am, and a sec­ond went down­stairs at 6am and saw a man mov­ing furniture.

He said he was at the wrong ad­dress, left the house and ran up the road to­wards St Theresa’s Close.

Dis­tinc­tive

Among the items taken were 10 leather din­ing room chairs with brown suede patches on the back legs, a cream mar­ble-sided ta­ble, a ma­hogany dis­play stand, and a Sony VAIO lap­top com­puter.

The first bur­glar was white, 5ft 7in tall and had dark brown hair.

The sec­ond was also white, 5ft 6in tall, slim and had short dark brown hair.

It is be­lieved the men could have been load­ing the furniture into a van.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to the in­ci­dent, which hap­pened on Thurs­day.

Det Con Eric Norman said: “I would like to speak to any­one who was in Mag­a­zine Road be­tween 5am and 6.15am that morn­ing and may have seen th­ese men run­ning from the house.

“In par­tic­u­lar, I would like to trace a wo­man who was wait­ing for a bus or pos­si­bly a lift on the op­po­site side of the road.”

Det Con Norman can be con­tacted at Ash­ford po­lice sta­tion on 01233 896284.
