Christmas cancelled for one family as burglars steal their presents
6:35pm Saturday 30th November 2013 in News
WRAPPED Christmas presents were stolen by brazen burglars.
The thieves broke into a home in Hastings Avenue, Clacton, on Friday, November 29 between 10.30am and noon.
The owners were out when they forced their way in, breaking the lock on the back door.
Rooms were ransacked and the burglars made off with two Sony Vaio laptops, two small JVC TV 6in screens for use in a vehicle and a Raymond Weil designer gold and diamond, square-faced man’s wrist watch. A large number of wrapped Christmas presents bought by the victims for their children and family were also stolen.
Investigating officer DC Mo Crawley said: "Two silver Ford Fiestas were seen parked near the burgled property.
“The occupants spoke together and police would like to speak with these occupants to eliminate them from the inquiry.
"We would also like to hear from anyone who may have information about who could be responsible for this burglary or anyone who may have been offered for sale any of the stolen items.
"With Christmas approaching we strongly advise the public to be extra vigilant with their security measures and to ensure any extra Christmas cash and valuable Christmas presents and valuable items of personal property are safely concealed or locked away when occupants are not at home.”
Anyone with information call DC Crawley at Clacton CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
