Alert message sent 09/11/2020 14:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


We are warning residents to be on their guard following a number of burglaries across the New Forest, specifically those living in the Ringwood area.

This comes after eight burglaries were reported to us late last week and over the weekend (5-9 November).

The burglaries happened at various times throughout this period, largely affecting residential properties, but there were also instances of commercial properties also being targeted. It was mostly power tools and other small items that were stolen and as part of this, we are investigating:

• A burglary at Burley Lodge stables between 6pm on Thursday 5 November and 10am on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200432945)

• A burglary at an address on Lyndhurst Road between 12am and 3am on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200431238)

• A burglary at an address on Lyndhurst Road between 6pm on Thursday 5 November and 8.30am on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200430551)

• A burglary at an address on Burley Road, Bransgore between 6pm on Saturday 7 November and 10am on Sunday 8 November (Crime ref: 44200433192)

• A burglary at a number of garages at Burgate Court on Salisbury Road between 10pm and 11.15pm on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200432035)

• A burglary at a number of garages at Renoir Burgate Court on Salisbury Road between 10.15pm and 11pm on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200431711)

• A burglary at an address on Green Lane at around 1.30am on Friday 6 November (Crime ref: 44200430622)

While three commercial properties were also targeted, and as such we are investigating;

• A burglary at the London Tavern on Linford Road between 9.30pm on Saturday 7 November and 7.50am on Sunday 8 November (Crime ref: 44200433028)

• A burglary at the Railway Hotel on Hightown Road between 11.30 and 11.30pm on Saturday 7 November (Crime ref: 44200432827)

• A burglary at a Sainsbury’s branch on Meeting House Lane between 12.10am and 12.25am on Sunday 8 November (Crime ref: 44200432862)

We would like to hear from anyone with information on any of these incidents. Did you notice anything suspicious? Perhaps you saw someone hanging around the area? Anyone with information can phone 101, quoting the crime reference numbers above.

We also wanted to take the opportunity to remind you of our crime prevention advice around burglaries:

- Lock your shed or garage every evening, ensuring that you have a reliable and robust lock in place to deter any would-be burglars

- Mark your prized possessions by using a property or police approved forensic marking solution only visible under Ultraviolet light

- Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.

- Record the details of your property such as serial numbers for electronic goods on the Immobilise website (https://www.immobilise.com/)

- You know your local communities. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, such as someone tampering with a lock on a neighbour’s shed, please report it to us via 101.
