Police at Eastleigh are seeking information about sightings of suspicious men or cold callers in the Eastleigh area after an attempted break-in at Tinning Way, Eastleigh on Tuesday, October 29.
At about 1.15pm, four men entered the garden of a semi-detached house via a side gate and attempted to force the patio door. The men left when they realised they were being watched by a neighbour.
All the men are white and in their mid-thirties. One of the men is 5ft 10ins tall and about 13-14 stone in weight. All four wore dark clothing of a similar style and hats.
Police Staff Investigator Steve Murden is asking for information about any four men seen acting suspiciously in the area of Tinning Way, Passfield Avenue or Dew Lane around the time of the incident.
He also wants information about any cold callers in the same area that day.
PSI Murden also offered some advice to residents:
“Following the onset of darker evenings, homeowners should consider whether they have appropriate security measures, such as lighting, to cover side access and rear gardens.”
Anyone with information should contact PSI Murden at Eastleigh CID on 101.
