Maisemore Burglaries


From Neighbourhood Alerts (delayed in transmission owing the the only person sending them out being on holiday!):

Maisemore Burglaries

Two adjacent homes were entered during the period between midday on 22nd February and 2pm the following day.  One of the houses is situated in Old Road and was entered by forcing a rear window. The other, just a short distance away on the A4176 [sic = A417], was entered by smashing a glass panel in a rear door. 
Both homes were subjected to an untidy search of most rooms with drawers etc. being left open or the contents tipped out.  We have no detail of any stolen property at this time. 
A dark coloured vehicle was seen in the area at around 9pm on the evening of [Tuesday] 22nd February suggesting the burglaries took place after darkness had fallen.  Similar burglaries have recently occurred in The Leigh, Norton and Dymock. 
If you have any information regarding these incidents, please contact the police by calling 101 and quote incident number 207 of 23rd February or online at 
You can also report information about criminal activity anonymously to CrimeStoppers by calling 0800 555111 or online at 
Although the daylight hours are lengthening into the evening now, burglars will still be on the lookout for homes left in complete darkness.  Please remember to leave a light on inside your home as darkness falls.  This is especially important if you leave your home unattended overnight or for longer periods of absence.  Also, why not let a trusted neighbour know you are going away so they can keep an eye on your home.

Please report any suspicious activity straight away and if you believe a crime is being committed dial 999.
