Syerston break-ins appeal
Updated on 11th October 2012
Police have issued an appeal for information after two adjoining houses in a Nottinghamshire village were burgled in broad daylight.
The properties in Moor Lane, Syerston, were targeted between midday and 12.45pm on Monday (8 October).
The thieves gained access to both houses in the same manner, using some sort of tool to force the glazing of rear French doors inwards.
Among the items stolen from the first property were a black iPad, a pink Nintendo DS, white Xbox and Xbox Kinect. A drawer containing a pearl and gold necklace and approximately 30 bracelets was also taken.
From the property next door the thieves took an HP laptop computer and a dark wood jewellery box. A ladies Calvin Klein silver bracelet and two silver christening bracelets, one with a small crucifix attached, and a gold crucifix and chain were also stolen, as were a Gerber multitool set in a black nylon case and a cocktail gift set.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the burglaries or seen anyone acting suspiciously in the village on Monday morning.
There are also two vehicles which may be of interest that officers would like to trace.
The first is a red Ford Mondeo with either ‘UNO’ of ‘VNO’ at the end of the registration plate.
A Transit panel van was also seen in the village at around the time of the burglary. It is believed the first four digits of its registration plate were ‘WL54’ or similar.
Anyone with any information about the burglaries or the vehicles described above is asked to telephone Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident numbers 330 or 449 of 8 October.
Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
