Burglars strike twice on same day

Two homes were burgled within hours of each other in West End last week.

The daytime raids took place on Wednesday (22 March) and in both cases glass panels were smashed to force entry.

One of the homes targeted was at Catherine Close where sometime between 9am and 2pm, a full length glass front door was smashed and various items were stolen.

At some other time on the same day between 10 am and 4.30pm, a home in Beacon Rd – less than a mile away – had it’s rear patio door smashed and again thieves made off with a variety of items including gold rings a pearl chain and a sliver turtle brooch.

Hampshire Police are appealing for any witnesses, or people who may have captured something on CCTV, to ring them by dialling 101.
