Police called to nine burglaries in 48 hours
9:29am Friday 8th February 2013 in News
NINE burglaries have been reported to police in 48 hours - the amount usually seen in a week.
Sean Paley, detective chief inspector for Herefordshire, said that from experience, burglars often live reasonably close to their victims and work a local patch.
He said: “They will return to or near to properties they have already broken into, so please bear this in mind if you live in any of the neighbourhoods where these recent burglaries have taken place.
“We have had as many burglaries reported to us in two days as we typically see over the space of a week. Obviously this increase is a concern to us and officers will leave no stone unturned in finding those responsible for these offences."
Witnesses should call 0300 333 3000 with any information.
