Burglary - Bourton

Posted: 02/01/2008 15:30:12

Police are appealing for information following a burglary at a property in Bourton near to Swindon at around 1pm on Saturday (29/12). Three men came to the property and forced their way in threatening the occupier with a crow bar.

One of the men went upstairs to search the house while two men stayed downstairs. The men left about ten minutes later with £58 in cash.

The men are all white and aged around 20. Two men are tall and thin with short black hair and one was wearing a black bomber jacket. The third man is slightly larger and had short dark hair.

Det Con Jon Shaw investigating the burglary said: ďThe men claimed that they were at the property to see a man about buying a motorcycle. Police are linking this to similar offences that happened on the same day in Wiltshire. This is a terrifying type of burglary that has left the victim, a woman in her sixties, shaken from the ordeal and we are keen to catch these men.Ē

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Det Con Jon Shaw at Abingdon police station via 0845 8 505 505, or if you donít want to talk to the police or give your name, call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
