Burglaries, Mid/East Devon

Appeal

Police call for vigilance

Police in Mid Devon are appealing for information after a spate of burglaries this month.

In each case, the break-ins have occurred at residential addresses during the day and tools have been used to gain entry. The offenders have then used bleach or other cleaning products to cover their tracks.

On two occasions, a silver Skoda Octavia was present with two or three occupants, and a false number plate was used.

Three burglaries occurred on Tuesday 8 September in Cullompton, Bradninch and Newton Poppleford, near Sidmouth. Another burglary occurred in Willand, near Cullompton, on Monday 7 September.

Residents living in areas close to the M5 are reminded to ensure their homes are secure when going out and to report any suspicious activity to police.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or via email at 101@dc.police.uk quoting crime reference CR/075196/20.
