Burglary in Upper Broughton and other villainous events…

In the early hours of Friday 18th September a property on Top Green was broken into whilst the owners were in the house. Access was gained by braking the glass and frame of a window then exiting by forcing a different window. Police think two people entered the house looking for car keys. They took a wallet and small bag, some of the contents of which were later found on the road to the A46 close to Carrier Landscapes.

Two cars also on Top Green had attempts made on them to remove front number plates.

There is phone footage which can be seen on the ‘WhatsApp group’ of a person approaching a property on Station Road, trying the front door where there were parked cars on the driveway which they were probably interested in stealing. He can then be seen running back to a white Toyota Aygo which drives off. Also captured on CCTV the same car is seen turning in a drive at the West end of Station Rd.

Following the events in Upper Broughton the same group apparently went on to carry out another attempted burglary in Wysall on the same night. The white Aygo  containing three white youths all wearing hoodies is seen on CCTV. There have also been reports and doorbell camera footage of a person approaching properties late at night from Wymeswold and Keyworth.

Update: A stolen white Aygo with false plates was found abandoned by Leicestershire Police on the morning of the crimes. Police currently are still investigating.
If you have any information please contact the local Police on 101.
