Burglaries in Sheerness believed linked

Kent Police is appealing for information after cash and jewellery were reported stolen from two nearby properties in Sheerness.

 

Both burglaries are said to have happened on Saturday 18 February 2017, one of which was in Marine Parade between 11am and 8.40pm.

 

It was reported that entry to the property was forced while the occupants were out.

 

The other was on Invicta Road between 5.05pm and 11.06pm, with entry being gained via the removal of a downstairs rear window.

 

Officers are linking the two incidents and anyone with information is urged to call the appeal line on 01795 419119 quoting reference XY/7609/17 (Marine Parade) or XY/7690/17 (Invicta Road). Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

 

Kent Police would also like to remind families of the steps they can take to protect their homes from burglars who target expensive jewellery and gold.

 

Residents are asked to keep such items out of the house if they can, such as in a safety deposit box at a bank where available. If people do need to keep high-value items at home then they should be kept in a good quality safe, bolted to a solid wall or floor and hidden out of sight.

 

Additional advice

Most burglaries happen on weekdays in daylight when you are more likely to be out. As well as locking up each time you leave, you can also:

– Keep keys, cash and expensive items out of view;

– Use timer switches on lights and radios to make your home look occupied;

– Keep gates locked and boundaries secure;

– Lock away bikes, tools and garden items that could be stolen or used to break into your home.

You can also:

– Security-mark items including bicycles, mobile telephones and laptops;

– Keep receipts, mobile phone IMEI numbers and serial numbers safe;

– Photograph and insure expensive or unique items;

– Install a safe, bolted to the ground or a wall, or use a safety deposit box at the bank;

– Register important items for free at www.immobilise.com to help us return stolen items if they are recovered.

Anyone who wishes to report a burglary or any suspicious activity is urged to call 101, or 999 if a crime is in progress.
