Spate of burglaries

Detectives in Basingstoke are investigating following a number of burglaries across the district. These incidents, which all happened in the daytime, are being linked. Officers are appealing for people to be vigilant and report anything suspicious to police immediately.

Houses in Wood Close and the Crofts in Hatch Warren were broken into and jewellery was stolen. Another property in Green Lane in Ellisfield was targeted but the offenders were disturbed.

The burglary at the house in The Crofts was particularly unusual in that the offenders are believed to have dragged a safe along an alleyway between The Crofts and Whitestones towards Hatch Warren Lane. Did you see this happening? Do you know anything about any of these incidents?”
