Burglary Alert – Kenilworth

WARWICKSHIRE POLICE are appealing for any information following a number of burglaries that have taken place in Kenilworth in recent days and weeks. Residents with CCTV in or near to the streets listed where burglaries have taken place are being asked to review any CCTV footage for several hours before and after the events.

Have you seen or heard anything suspicious in or around the streets where these burglaries have taken place over the past few days and weeks? If yes please contact Warwickshire Police on 101 or alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Some of the events have occurred within the last 24 hours with others over the past few days and weeks. In all cases to date where entry to a property has taken place items of jewellery have been stolen.

Kenilworth Watch are appealing to residents with UPVC type doors to check the type of locks fitted and change them to the “Anti Snap” type. Many standard locks do not offer robust protection and can often easily be punched through enabling entry for criminals within 10 seconds.

Please watch this short film that shows how easy it can be to punch a standard lock out.
