Home Invasion Fears Following Attempted Break In

  • Written by Editor

Local News | Home Invasion Fears Following Attempted Break In | Andover & VillagesResidents are reminded to be vigilant following a suspicious incident in Ludgershall.

At approximately 4am on Thursday 16 March, a man in his 70s was watching television when he heard a scrapping noise at the front door of his retirement bungalow. He went to the hallway and saw a torch or mobile phone light being shone at the door.

He kicked the door from the inside and told the person to go away. They were seen to run on to the footpath which runs along the back of Ludgershall Castle Primary School and on to Perham Crescent.

PC Trevor Morgan said: "I'd like to urge residents to be mindful of home security and ensure all doors and windows are locked and doors are fitted with mortice locks. Keep valuable items out of view and never leave a spare key in a plant pot or letter box as thieves will always know where to look.

"We'd like to hear from anybody who may have seen a person in a hoody walking around in the areas of Prince Charles Close and Perham Crescent between the areas of 3am and 5am on 16 March.

"I'd also ask those with CCTV or vehicle dash cams to check their footage to see if they have caught anyone suspicious on camera.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
