Warning over spate of burglaries in Lincolnshire town

A string of recent burglaries in a Lincolnshire town has caused police to warn residents to be extra vigilant.

Three burglaries were carried out in Burgh le Marsh between August 27 and September 13.

A property in Station Road was broken into and jewellery and cash were taken between 8.30am and 6.30pm on August 27 (incident 400).

Another burglary was carried out at another property on the same street on September 12 (incident 483). Police said nothing is believed to have been taken.

A property in Elm Crescent, just off Station Road, was broken into the following day. A search had been carried out within the property, but it is not believed anything was taken (incident 148 of September 13).

Detective constable Andrew Beard said: “It is important that people are alert and aware of what is going on in their street.

“As well as keeping an eye on your own home. Look out for your neighbours’ properties as well, and contact the police if you see anyone who is acting suspiciously. Residents should look out for people on cycles, or in vehicles which you do not recognise.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting the relevant incident number.
