Hampshire Constabulary warns Eastleigh residents to be vigilant following spate of burglaries

Alert message sent 29/09/2021 14:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Hello,

We are warning residents to be on their guard following a number of burglaries and thefts across Eastleigh district.

This comes after a number of burglaries were reported to us since the weekend (27 – 29 September).

The burglaries happened at various times throughout this period and targeted residential properties. While items such as golf clubs, washing machines and air-conditioning units had been stolen, we want to remind local residents to secure their property and premises.

This included a number of garages being targeted in Loveridge Way, Nutbeem Road, Leigh Road and Westfield Road; whereby a small number of items were stolen.

While a washing machine and air-conditioning unit were stolen from outside a property on Grantham Road and entry gained to two properties on Hound Road and Nutbeem Road were by smashing window panes or forcing UPVC doors.

In another incident, a bank card was stolen from an address on York Close and a large quantity of cash was withdrawn as a result.

Marcus Cator, District Commander for Eastleigh, said: “We are fully aware of the impact that crimes such as these can have on local residents, and the wider local community; especially if items are stolen which impact on their livelihoods.

“Our local neighbourhood policing teams continue to review every crime which is reported to us and follow-up on all reasonable lines of enquiry including reviewing available CCTV, camera’s on residential properties and conducting house-to-house enquiries; with a view to identifying those responsible for these crimes and bringing them to justice.

“We would please urge any member of the local community who sees anything suspicious or if you’ve been a victim of crime yourself to report this to the police either via our online reporting portal on the Hampshire Constabulary website or by calling 101. As always, if a crime is in progress or it is an emergency, please dial 999 immediately.”

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.
