11:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Local
RESIDENTS are being warned to remain alert following a burglary in Alvechurch.
It happened at a house in Aqueduct Lane between 10.20am and 5.40pm on Wednesday, October 23.
Offenders smashed a large downstairs window to gain access, causing £250 damage, and took a £500 Samsung laptop.
Detective Constable Tony Flannagan of West Mercia Police said: “There have been several recent burglaries in Alvechurch, Hollywood and Wythall, so we are reminding householders and people who are out and about, including dog walkers, to be vigilant and to contact us if they see or hear anything suspicious, such as an alarm sounding or the sound of glass breaking.
“It would be really helpful if they could note the registration numbers of any suspicious vehicles.”
Police are also urging householders to set the alarm if one is installed, keep valuables out of sight and trim hedges so they do not provide cover for burglars.
Witnesses or anyone with information can contact DC Flannagan on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 490-s-231013 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
