Police are investigating after two burglaries were reported in Bradley Stoke this morning, Friday 8th June.

Officers were called just after 9.30am by a householder who disturbed two people after the dog started barking. It’s believed the intruders gained access to the house off Hawkins Crescent through the ‘dog flap’. They made off immediately on realising someone was at home, but took a set of keys.

One was described as of mixed race appearance, aged over 18 and wearing a blue backpack. The other was of similar age and appearance, and wore a grey coat.

A second burglary was reported just before 10.30am. Officers say they are grateful to a witness who called the police straight away after hearing an alarm sounding at a property off Westfield Way while the householders weren’t in, and for taking the time to check. The witness reported seeing two men leave the property in the householder’s car, which was later recovered in Arlingham Way [Patchway]. Police attended and found a window at the property had been forced. It’s not yet clear if anything else has been stolen.

One man was described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5ft 11ins tall and of medium build. He wore a white baseball cap. A second was said to be wearing a grey hooded top.

Anyone with any information which could help police enquiries into either incident is asked to get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/contact, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5218125325 (Westfield Way area) or 5218125227 (Hawkins Crescent area).

Alternatively, phone the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call. You could even qualify for a reward and still remain anonymous.
