Offenders broke windows on doors to gain entry to two separate homes

Laptops, iPads and jewellery were among items stolen in two rural burglaries police believe to be linked.

Between 1.15pm and 2.30pm on Saturday offenders gained entry to a house on High Street in Edlesborough by breaking the window of a door.

Once inside they stole electrical items which included an iPad and a laptop.

Another burglary took place on Christmas Eve between 4.30pm and 6pm at a house on Stewkley Road, Soulbury. Again a window was broken, this time on a front door, to gain entry.

Jewellery, toiletries, Playstation 3 games, cash and electrical items which included an iPad and a laptop were stolen.

Thames Valley Police’s DC Emma Francis, of Aylesbury Local CID, said the offences ‘may be linked’ as they both took place in rural areas of the Vale.

“I am keen to speak to anyone that may have been in the area at the times and dates of these offences and may have seen anything suspicious,” she said.

“I would also like to remind members of the public to secure their property and do not leave valuable items on display. Also, electrical items such as iPads and laptops can be installed with tracking apps.

“I would advise members of the public to sign up and register their valuables on the immbolise website, which can to help trace stolen goods and return them to the rightful owners.”

Anyone who witnessed anything suspicious or who has any information relating to the burglaries should call police on 101.
