Eastleigh police investigate Chilworth burglary

Blue Police Lamp

At about 11.40am Monday, October 15, a burglar forced a rear ground floor window of the house to gain access to a dining room. The house was alarmed and linked directly to the alarm company. The alarm was activated at 11.40am.

Several items were taken from a display cabinet and drawers. These include a pair of wooden lamps, painted with flowers and leaves in green and white. They are about two feet in height with white pleated fabric shades. Also taken were several pewter tankards and goblets and small silver plated dogs and foxes, which hold used cutlery.

Just before the burglary, a woman was seen walking up the drive of the house. She is described as a white woman in her late twenties or early thirties. She is about 5ft 8ins tall with long black hair, dyed auburn at the ends. Her figure is described as pear-shaped, and she wore black trousers and a black pullover.

Detectives want to hear from anyone who recognises the woman’s description and from anyone who is offered goods like those taken in the burglary.

Detective Constable Stephen Ashe said:

“It is worrying that this home was targeted despite the security measures put in place.

“We would appeal to anyone who has any information to contact the police. I would like to remind residents to be vigilant and to report anything or anybody they feel is out of the ordinary.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Eastleigh CID on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111.
