Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Between 4.30pm and 6.40pm on 8th February an address on Carmen Crescent in Holton Le Clay has been entered by offenders.  Method of entry has been to force the hinges of a patio door.  Once inside an untidy search has been made in most rooms with cash and high value jewellery being targetted.  Included in this are 2 distinctive watches - a silver TAG Heuer watch and a green Boss 'Golf hole in one' watch.  The occupants of the address were not present at the time of the offence which was noticed on their return home.

Also yesterday evening at 5.50pm an offender was disturbed trying to enter an address on High Street in North Thoresby.  Fortunately a next door neighbour became suspicious when hearing an unusual bang and on going to investigate has seen a male trying to enter through a rear kitchen window.  On being disturbed the male offender has left the scene and was last seen running towards the Halfway House public house. The offender is described as being male, slim and tall, wearing dark clothing and a balaclava.

A short time later a dark coloured (believed Skoda) estate vehicle was seen leaving at speed and heading into the village.  The vehicle is described as being covered in mud with the registration plate being obscured because of this.

The occupant of the address in North Thoresby were away from their address on holiday.
  • Do you live in these areas and have any CCTV?
  • Have you seen anything or anyone acting suspiciously in the area?
  • Did you see the dark coloured estate vehicle described?
    If you have any information regarding these offences then please call 101 and quote Inc. 340 (North Thoresby) or 365 (Holton Le Clay), 8/12/19.
Last year between October and December saw an unprecedented rise in dwelling burglaries in the area and we are trying to do as much as we can to prevent this happening again.  Yesterdays offences have both seen the occupants being away from their addresses.  One on holiday and one for just a short time.  Be aware that properties are almost certainly being identified as targets.  These are not random attacks on homes.  Once again please do as much as you can to target harden yourselves.  Think security - lights, alarms, CCTV.  Offenders do not want to get caught so please do as much as you can to prevent yourselves becoming one of their targets.  If you would like any help or advice on this then please get in touch - we're here to help.

If you are going to be away from your home, please let somebody know and get them to check your address daily. Curtains permanently open and/or closed,  bins being put out early and left out once the rubbish has been collected, a house always in darkness or a single hallway light always being on are sure tale signs that you're not at home and sends a clear signal to those looking to come and commit crime. Get a friend or neighbour to check your address and get them to open and close your curtains and put multiple lights on timers.

If you see ANYTHING suspicious and that looks out of place ring 101 immediately and if an offence is occurring at that time 999.
