Two 19-year-old men have been arrested in connection with a burglary in South Gloucestershire.

Police say it comes after a tip off following the release of CCTV footage. It showed two men burgling a house in Emersons Green as the residents were asleep upstairs. A third man was also involved.

The men, of the Brislington and Easton areas of Bristol, were arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of burglary and are currently in police custody.

The public responded fantastically to our appeal and it is because of the information they rang in with that we have made these two arrests.

We never underestimate the importance of community intelligence and we recognise how vital the public’s support is in helping us keep the communities of Avon and Somerset safe and to bringing criminals to justice.

Footage showing three hooded burglars creeping around a house as the unsuspecting occupants slept upstairs, has been released.

The CCTV pictures show two men searching the living room of a home in Bristol, while the third keeps watch at the front door.

A second security camera then shows the pair pacing the living room as they trawl for items to steal at 3am.

After a good look around the burglars tread carefully back to the hallway with their arms laden with stolen items and hand their haul to the third man.

The crime was only uncovered after the owner was woken by a noise and found his front door open and the light downstairs turned on.

The robbers made off with a number of items, including three laptops, a handbag, wallets and a set of car keys.

Police have now released footage of the March 25 break-in in Emersons Green, which shows two of the men's faces.

All three suspects wore dark clothing. The two who searched the house were dressed in hoodies underneath coats, grey trousers and black gloves. One wore Nike trainers.

Anyone with information should contact police.
