Appeal for information following five break-ins in Chesterfield
Main article content
We’re appealing for information after five homes have been broken into in Newbold, Brampton, Walton and Wingerworth.
Homes on Windermere Road and Highbury Road in Newbold, Storrs Road in Brampton, Somersby Avenue in Walton and Staunton Close in Wingerworth were targeted and jewellery and cash has been reported stolen.
We believe the incidents have taken place sometime between 9am yesterday (Monday 28 October) and 7.15am this morning (Tuesday 29 October).
Our officers have been carrying out inquiries, and would like to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in these areas around the time of the incidents.
We do not yet know if all the incidents are all linked, but residents are advised to be more security conscious around their homes, particularly with the darker evenings.
Safer Neighbourhood Team Sergeant Darran Clarke said: “In light of these incidents, and as we are now at that time of year where it can be easier to spot an empty property we would like to remind people to think about their home security.
“Always make sure windows and doors are locked, leave a light or a lamp on an automatic timer if you can, and if you have a burglar alarm make sure it is set. We would also encourage people not to leave valuables in sight of windows and doors.”
Sgt. Clarke added: “Officers are carrying out patrols in the area and inquiries are ongoing, but I would urge anyone with any information which could help to contact us.”
