1 min read

Were you driving along Harbors Lake Lane in Newchurch between 9.30 am and 5.30 pm on Saturday 14 March?

Did you notice anyone acting suspiciously on this quiet rural road and did you catch them on dashcam?

Police are investigating a report of a burglary at a nearby property between these times. A tin containing cash was stolen from a house, along with a handbag containing cash.

If you have any information or captured something on dashcam in this location, please call 101 quoting 44200097245.

Officers have taken this opportunity to remind homeowners to ensure your property is securely locked when leaving the house, and to consider installing a safe if you have high-value items in your home.

Many burglars are opportunistic. Further crime prevention advice on how to protect yourself from burglary can be found on our website: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/residential-burglary/home-safes/
