“We know that burglaries can have a devastating impact on victims including an emotional impact especially when it happens in people’s homes.

“Burglary is a breach of a person’s privacy in a place which many people consider their safe space and we will always work hard to track down suspects and help those who have been the victim of a burglary.

“But our investigation is continuing and we would ask anyone with any information, or anyone who witnessed the incident to get in touch with us on 101, quoting incident 680 of 14 November 2021.”
