Police are urging residents to remain vigilant as they continue to investigate a series of burglaries within the Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield and Annesley Woodhouse areas.

We’re investigating six offences which were committed during the early hours of the morning between Friday (7 June 2019) and Sunday (9 June 2019).

They happened at addresses in Derby Road and off Church Street and Southwell Lane in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, off Forest Road and in Portland Avenue, Annesley Woodhouse, and in Newark Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Our enquiries are ongoing. Our officers are working extremely hard to trace those responsible and we’ve increased patrols in the areas to provide reassurance to residents.

Detective Sergeant Craig Luckett said: "We’re appealing for anyone with any information about these burglaries to get in touch with us, we’re asking people to report any suspicious activity to us and reminding people to check their home security.

"A lot of burglaries happen because a door or window is left open so make sure your windows are closed and locked and your front and back doors are locked.

"If you have an alarm make sure it’s working and activated as this can also act as a deterrent."

Among the incidents we’re investigating is an attempted burglary which happened at a property off Forest Road in Annesley Woodhouse during the early hours of Saturday (8 June 2019).

Do you recognise the person in the CCTV footage? We want to speak to them in connection with this incident.

If you have any information please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 248 of 8 June 2019, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
