Witness Appeal To Jewellery Burglary
My wife, Emma, and I moved into Stud House last August, buying it from Ian and Victoria Waters. We love the village and look forward to many happy years in the community.
Sadly yesterday we suffered a burglary at 6.10 - 6.20pm. Luckily neither Emma or I were at home, we called the police immediately who attended the scene within 20 mins or so, I am sure the flashing lights were noticed! Our nearby neighbours' new security system includes CCTV which is how we know that 4 men left the property at 6.20 and also spotted a lady walking her dog along the street only a few yards behind the perpetrators. Please see below. If the photo is sufficient to identify her, we would appreciate it if she was able to provide the Wiltshire police with any information that may support their investigation.
The police informed us 2 other burglaries were reported last night, one in Hungerford the other in Pewsey, which seems unlikely to be a coincidence.
For your information, we will be increasing security at the house including adding CCTV of our own. This may be worth dialogue at the forthcoming Parish Council? Perhaps having signs indicating CCTV exists in the village.
Any help you can provide is much appreciated.
Very best wishes,
If you heard or saw anything suspicious around these times on this date or noticed a vehicle driving erratically, please contact the police on 101 quoting crime reference number 54200017408.
They are particularly keen to speak this dog walker who was seen passing this address at the time of the incident and who may have seen the suspects.
