Two properties in Meppershall targeted by burglars

TWO properties in a village have been targeted by burglars this week.

The offenders were able to force open a patio door in the conservatory at the rear of the location but strong home security ensured that they could not access the rest of the property and they left empty handed.

The offenders were able to access the garden at the rear of the property and then prize open a ground floor kitchen window.

DC Adams said: “Meppershall is a relatively quiet village, so to have two incidents of burglary take place in a short period of time is unusual.

“We would really like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or anyone else who may have information however small or insignificant they think it is that could help us.

“Don’t dismiss your information as unimportant – even tiny details which don’t seem relevant now might become useful later on in the investigation.”
