This police action sends out a message that we will not tolerate burglars in our community and that we intend to make life as unpleasant as possible for those suspected of being involved. Our investigation is still ongoing and we continue to target those who are responsible. Burglary is a horrible crime which can leave its victims feeling distressed and frightened and we are determined to take action against those who commit these offences.
