Burglary & Attempted Burglary

Between 5.00pm and 8.00pm on Friday 9th February, a house in Tempest Road was burgled.  Entry was via a rear kitchen window and a quantity of cash was stolen.

We have also had report of an attempted burglary of a house on Birstall Road (close to the village centre/triangle area).  There is damage to the rear fence of the property and footprints on the rear door suggesting an attempt to kick it open, but no entry was gained.  This is believed to have occurred between 2.00am on Thursday 8th and 1.00pm on Friday 9th February.

Suspicious Vehicle / Rogue Traders

Grey box van with red writing on the side   ULTIMM

Registration number   YJ63TPF

The vehicle was involved in a fraud in Shepshed where the 88yr old victim was quoted £15 for a couple of loose roof slates and then charged £2,450.00.  The vehicle has since been seen around the Kenilworth Road area of Loughborough, no doubt looking for another victim.

Burglary – Cliffe Road

On the afternoon of Saturday 6th January, between 1.00pm and 6.00pm, a property on Cliffe Road was burgled.  Entry was by smashing a patio door and then jewellery was stolen.

Three people on bikes were seen about 3.00pm, going up driveways and looking into houses, so it’s probably them who are responsible.  Unfortunately no-one is able to describe them has they all had hoods up and face coverings.

Allington Drive – Gas Explosion

The following message has been received from the local police beat team:-

Incident in Birstall yesterday (gas explosion, 42 Allington Drive).
As you know many residents were evacuated from their homes and some left their homes of their own accord not wishing to return that evening, in case of any further issues, leaving us with many empty houses. Most residents wanted to and were allowed to return later in the evening.
For this reason could I please ask that a message be sent out to the residents to be extra vigilant and at the same time look out for any suspicious activity around the empty houses in the incident location?
There will be police presence around the area over the next few days, but any help and assistance from the residents would be greatly appreciated.

We thank you very much for your help at this time.
