Good afternoon, this is Police Support Volunteer Chris Ivett at Horncastle Neighbourhood Police team.
Following two recent incidents in Horncastle, we are appealing for information or witnesses.
Between the times of 1800 on 13/04/2018 and 0300 on 14/04/2018/2018 a burglary took place from a property in Steve Newton Avenue, Horncastle. It is believed that access was gained by the rear door and exit was made by the front door. A safe was stolen from the property but other valuable items were left behind.
On 14/04/2018, a second burglary was reported in the village of Langton when two push bikes were taken from a secure garage. There were no signs of a forced entry and it is not known how access was gained. It is believed that the bikes were taken overnight.
If anyone has seen or heard anything relating to either of these incidents please contact Crimestoppers or PCSO Wass quoting incident number 37 of 14/04/2018 (burglary of the safe))or incident number 76 of 14/04/2018 (burglary of bikes).
Please remember to secure property and outbuildings at all times and ensure any security lighting and CCTV if used, is fully functioning in order to deter potential burglars.
