Car and keys taken in burglaries at two homes in Bradley Stoke

Posted on Friday 8th June 2018 at 5:17 pm by SH (Editor)

Police car.

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.

Bradley Stoke home targeted in series of gold burglaries on same day

Posted on Thursday 5th October 2017 at 7:11 pm by SH (Editor)

Police are appealing for information after items of gold jewellery were stolen during break-ins at homes in Bradley Stoke, Filton and Shirehampton on Monday 2nd October.

A fourth break-in, also on Monday, at a property in Westbury-on-Trym, is also being investigated.

The first happened in the Three Brooks Lane area of Bradley Stoke between 8.45am and 12.45pm. The thieves scaled a six-foot garden fence to break in and steal gold jewellery, including a diamond bangle (pictured below), as well as cash in Indian rupees and a small gold-plated statue of Ganesha.

Between 12.55pm and 1.45pm, thieves forced the rear doors of a house in Southmead Road, Filton and stole two gold bangles and a laptop. It’s thought the burglars were disturbed by the alarm sounding. The householder remembers seeing an unfamiliar white car parked in the road as they left the property.

A house in Home Ground, Westbury-on-Trym was broken into between 1.40pm and 2.50pm. The burglars damaged the front and back doors and gained entry by forcing a window. It’s not yet clear what was stolen. Again an unfamiliar white car was seen in the area at the time.

Finally, a house in St Marys Road, Shirehampton was burgled between 3pm and 3.40pm. The thieves smashed the rear patio door and stole gold jewellery.

Officers have carried out house-to-house enquiries in each of the areas affected. Forensic investigations have taken place at each property and the Bobby Van, a specially trained police carpenter, will visit to offer home security advice.

Police say they’re keen to trace two men who were seen getting into a white car in Westbury-on-Trym at around 2.30pm. One wore a white hoodie and dark-coloured trousers, while the second wore a dark-coloured hoodie and baseball cap (pictured above).
