Yesterday, Tuesday 20 September, a resident in Stockcroft Road called police to report an intruder disturbed in their property just prior to 4.00 pm. The male was found in the kitchen having entered via the open back door and left promptly on being discovered. At this time it is not confirmed whether anything was taken. The only description we have is that he was a male wearing plimsolls.
Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity, we would also urge you to keep doors locked even when you are at home. If you have any concerns at all, please don’t hesitate to contact the police. If you suspect a crime is in progress you should call 999 with details.
