Burglary Updates - KIDLINGTON

Alert message sent 12/11/2017 14:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Previous TV Alert messages have advised that we have had a spate of Burglaries in the KIDLINGTON area.

We would like to update the local community with what we do know about the pattern so you can be aware and look out for any suspicious people.
•Burglaries tend to be happening between 1pm and 8pm

•Entry is being gained at the REAR of properties

•Jewellery is being stolen in nearly all cases.

•Locations targeted are often near ALLEYWAYS or FOOTPATH only exits.

•Quite a few burglaries have been in the GARDEN CITY area of Kidlington

How can YOU Help?
•Get to know your neighbours, do they work in the daytime/ could someone who lives local keep an eye on the properties empty in the day?
•Report any suspicious activity in a street: Be it a car unfamiliar to the road or close or persons who just do not fit in the day to day activity in your street. We want to catch the culprits for these crimes but we REALLY need eyes and ears in the village.

•If you see vehicles - try to get a registration or make and colour - report it to police. What you have seen might be important.

•If you are a home who has CCTV then have a check to see it is still functioning correctly

•If you own a lot of jewellery then consider how you store it and where. Could you tell what you have or list it if it was stolen? If not then photographing items and saving the pictures could prove valuable.

What does a Burglar look like?

Probably NOT what you think! Older, younger, taller, smaller, male or female - there are many stereotypes so you could go by this:

IF IT LOOKS WRONG or IT IS NOT "RIGHT" FOR YOUR STREET THEN IT PROBABLY IS WORTH A CALL TO THE POLICE.
