Burglaries prompt alert


Homeowners in the Vale of White Horse are being urged to be vigilant following a spate of burglaries.

In more than one case a pane of glass has been removed, suggesting the crimes are linked.

In the past week there have been four burglaries in villages along the A420.


Last Wednesday jewellery and ornaments were stolen from a property in Garford and jewellery worth several thousand pounds was taken during a break-in at a house in Fernham.

On Friday, a house in Ashbury was broken into but nothing taken.

On Saturday evening, offenders broke into a house in Stanford in the Vale. The burglars made off with cash and a pension book.

Police are linking the raids with a burglary in Little Coxwell in December, in which antiques were stolen.

Anyone with information should call Dc Chris Leech, of the Vale priority crime team, on 08458 505505. He urged residents to review their security arrangements, adding: "Make sure valuables are insured, and keep photos of them."

Talk about bolting the door after the Horse has gone.

The world of Stolen Art and Antiques seems to be booming.
