We’re advising the public to be vigilant following burglaries in the north of the city.

There were three incidents in the early hours of Saturday (4 May), in which access was made to homes via open ground floor windows.

The roads targeted were Rochford Road and Old Wymering Lane. A handbag containing a small amount of cash and two sets of headphones were stolen in one incident. The other two incidents were attempted burglaries.

We’re reminding residents to shut windows, where possible, especially those on the ground floor of homes.

We’d encourage people to follow our crime prevention advice on our website https://www.hampshire.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/residential-burglary/

If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area between midnight and 5.30am on Saturday, we’d like to hear from you.
