Street and Glastonbury residents warned after a spate of burglaries
POLICE are warning householders in Street and Glastonbury to be extra vigilant after a spate of burglaries.
There have been a number of offences over the weekend, with properties in Street and Glastonbury targeted.
Three houses were hit and in all cases the doors or windows had been left open by the householder.
The first incident took place at Boundary Way, Glastonbury, and homes in Strode Road and Barn Close, Street, were also targeted.
Inspector Mark Nicholson from Wells Police Station has been quick to reassure the public that the police are doing all they can to identify the people responsible for the thefts.
“We are fully investigating these thefts and are pursuing some lines of enquiry,” he said.
“What is particularly worrying for us is that these burglars are often able to get in through open doors or windows.
“The sad thing about thefts of these kinds is that it can lead to people feeling vulnerable and unsafe.
“We are asking people to remain vigilant in the wake of these thefts, and ensure their properties are kept secure.
“We would urge anyone who is worried about their home security to contact a member of the local neighbourhood team, who can carry out a crime reduction survey of their property to help make it less vulnerable.”
He urged anyone who has information about the thefts to contact the police on 101.
He also added that information packs on home security are obtainable for police stations.
