Vigilant neighbour disturbs would-be burglars

Posted on 8th February 2017

A vigilant neighbour disturbed two men who tried to break into a house in Alvaston.

We are appealing for witnesses to the attempted burglary, which happened between 1.45pm and 4.20pm on Wednesday, January 25, at a house in Dalkeith Avenue.

A woman saw two men looking at her neighbour’s property at around 4pm that day so she challenged them. They got into the black car they had arrived in and left.

It was later discovered that someone had tried to force the front door of the house open.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call DC Luanne Heeley on 101, quoting reference 17000035523.
