A CCTV image of two men officers would like to identify in connection with two burglaries at colleges in Basingstoke and Farnborough

We are appealing for information following two burglaries at sixth form colleges in north Hampshire.

Sometime between 6am and 7am on Saturday 7 July, offender(s) broke into Queen Mary’s College, in Cliddesden Road, Basingstoke.

Cash was stolen, and damage was also caused to several windows and doors.

Between 11.35pm on Sunday 8 July and 12.05am on Monday 9 July, offender(s) smashed a window of a building at Farnborough College of Technology in Boundary Road, Farnborough. Cash was stolen.

At this stage, the two incidents are being treated as linked.

Officers have also released a CCTV image of two men they would like to speak to about these burglaries.

Detective Constable Amanda Wallis said: “We appreciate the image is not of the greatest quality, but we would like to hear from anyone who saw these two men at either college at the relevant times.

“Perhaps you recognise the clothing in the image, particularly the distinctive-looking top?

“We are doing everything we can to find the people responsible. If you have any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you, please get in touch.”

Anyone with information can call police on 101, quoting 44180254669 (Queen Mary’s College, Basingstoke) or 44180257086 (Farnborough College of Technology).

Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.

In an emergency, call 999.
