A mini-crimewave continues in the southside of Aylesbury after four homes were burgled in Elm Farm at the weekend.

Electrical items, computer accessories, handbags and wallets were stolen from a home in Charmfield Road between 12.30am-8am on Sunday.

On the same day, cash, electrical items and keys were taken from a Diane Close home between 1.15am-8.30am while electrical items, cash and jewellery were stolen from a home in Edward Close between midnight and 10am.

Burglars also stole clothing, laptops, a handbag and a camera from a Charles Close home between 10.45pm on Saturday and 7.15am on Sunday.

These latest incidents follow seven reported break-ins in the Elm Farm and Bedgrove estates during January and February.

Inspector Kelly Glister, said: “I would like to remind residents to securely double lock their UPVC doors. The offenders have entered the properties through insecure doors. Locking your UPVC door involves two simple steps.

“Pull up the handle to engage any additional bolts and use the key to securely lock the door

“It is vital to remember that a UPVC door is only securely locked if you use the key. If you just pull the handle up this does not fully lock the door and prevent entry.”

If you have any information about this series of burglaries please contact the police via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
