There were two burglaries at homes in Elford yesterday, Thursday. Both occurred during daytime, discovered when the occupants returned home after 3:00PM. One was at a house in The Beck, the other an address in The Square. In both cases the front door was forced. A large amount of property was stolen, including electrical items, cash and jewellery. Footprints recovered from the premises link the two incidents.
We are seeing an increase in similar daytime burglaries across the district, including many rural areas. Residents are urged to be very observant for anything suspicious. Clearly in this case the offenders were using a vehicle, and we hope someone will have seen it. If you can help, please contact the police.
