Dwelling burglary in Holton Le Clay

Alert message sent 21/12/2018 08:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Sadly we have received yet another report of a dwelling burglary in the village.  Last night (20th December) a property has been targeted on Church Lane, Holton Le Clay.  Entry has been gained to the rear of the premise which was protected from view by a high fence.  Once in the garden the lock to the rear door has been damaged and entry gained.  It appears at this time cash has been targeted.

From enquires already made it is possible there were 2 offenders and that once exiting the property have gone onto St Peters Close, Pinfold Lane and then headed up Church Lane past the front of the targeted property and towards Louth Road.  These males have been described as white males, late teens - early 20's.  Both wore baseball caps.  One had a full black tracksuit on, the other a lighter coloured and possibly grey tracksuit.  These males were seen at approximately 7.30pm on Church Lane 'jogging' towards Louth Road with scarves up around their faces.  Property taken from the address has also been recovered on St Peters Close.

The occupant of the targeted address was not present at the time and was away on holiday.  This is another dwelling burglary offence matching previous reports of the owner either being on holiday or away from their address at the time of the offence.

Do you have CCTV covering the area described above?  If so we would be extremely interested in hearing from you.  Did you see or hear anything suspicious last night or did you see these males in and around that time?

If you have any information regarding this incident please call 101 and quote 532, 20/12/2018.

A reminder too please to remain extra vigilant.  We are experiencing a concerning rise in dwelling burglaries with late afternoon - early mid evenings on Friday - Sundays appearing to be times when premises are being targeted.  With this in mind and us being at that time of year where presents are being prepared, please do not leave items on show and make your home more attractive to those looking to commit crime in our community.

Once again if you need any help or advice, please get in touch.  Thank you.
