Attempted burglary in Basingstoke

Police are appealing for witnesses and information about an attempted burglary at a house in Roman Road, Basingstoke.

Shortly before 4.30pm on 3rd October 2012, a 36-year-old woman returned home from work and, once inside, saw a man running out of the driveway.

She checked and found that a window in the conservatory at the back of the house had been smashed.

It appears that the would-be-burglar was disturbed and nothing appears to have been taken. Did you see anything suspicious in the Roman Road area? It’s believed the offender ran off towards Kenilworth Road.”

– PC Mark Pullman, Hampshire Police

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Pullman at Basingstoke Police Station on 101 or call the anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
