Burglary at home of fatal car crash victim

Lincolnshire Police are appealing for information after the home of a man who died in a crash was burgled.

The 74 year-old man, whose name has not yet been released, was killed in a collision at West Fen Drainside, in Frithville, last Thursday afternoon.

The burglary at his home in Tennyson Close was reported at 9am this morning after the glass in the front door was found smashed.

All burglaries are abhorrent but to break into the home of someone who recently died in very tragic circumstances is a despicable crime indeed. Extra police patrols are being carried out in the area and I am urging anyone with information about the burglary to contact me or approach one of the local officers.

– DC Sue-Ellen Wilson, Boston CID

Adams and other family members were at home at the time but were not aware of the break-in. Burglars took two cars, training kit and valuable personal possessions.

The Leeds boxer's grey Hyundai Veloster Turbo was found at around 8.20am today parked in Sandringham Way in Alwoodley after a member of the public called the police to report it having been left there.

Unfortunately the boxing equipment and other items that were in the boot when it was stolen were no longer in the vehicle.

We would like to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle being left in Sandringham Way any time after it was stolen on Wednesday morning.

The silver Ford Focus TDCi, registration YH09DLU, that was also stolen in the burglary remains outstanding at this time. We would still like to hear from anyone who has seen that vehicle or who knows its current whereabouts."
