Vamoose Burglaries and Rogue Traders
Thames Valley Police would like to raise awareness of a recent increase in burglary dwelling offences, where vehicles have been stolen in the local area of Aylesbury Vale.
There have been seven offences in total that took place last month. All offences expect one, took place during the day.
Local residents are advised to take crime prevention measures to help protect themselves from becoming a victim of vamoose burglaries.
DC Tom Perry, from Aylesbury Vale Local CID, advises that if you are planning to go on holiday or will be leaving your property unoccupied for a period of time, leave your car keys with a trusted neighbour or relative and where possible block your vehicles on your driveways. Other tips include, parking in a well lit area, and keep your car keys away from any windows and doors to prevent them from being “fished” through letterboxes, or seen from outside to tempt the thief.
DC Tom Perry said: “The investigation into the offences is progressing well but it is important for local residents to remain extra vigilant in relation to rogue traders who are currently active, or who have recently been in the Aylesbury vale area.
“I would like to urge members of the public who have come in contact with any rogue traders to note down their details and contact the police via the 101 number immediately. We value the input from the public to gather intelligence and this will help to further progress the police investigation into these offences”.
