Burglaries in Tewkesbury

Alert message sent 04/12/2019 15:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

There were three dwelling burglaries reported in the Mitton area on the evening of 2nd December. The first occurred in Moulder Road where the offenders cut the bolt on a side gate and, it seems, were able to use the rear door key that had been left in the lock on the inside to get into the house without causing damage.  Items stolen include cash, a watch and a walking stick.

The second burglary was located in Derwent Drive where a front window was smashed to gain entry.

In the third incident, in Desiree Drive, three offenders were disturbed and seen to drive off in a car.  Neighbours alerted the police and three men were arrested a short time later on the outskirts of Tewkesbury.

Please call 101 if you have any information regarding these crimes or saw or heard any unusual activity in the area on Monday evening.

Houses left in darkness while you are at work, out for the evening or on holiday are particularly vulnerable to thieves prowling around looking for opportunities to commit crime.  Please use time switches on lights to give the impression someone is at home even when the house unoccupied.  Please consider the security at the rear of your homes as patio doors are particularly vulnerable, and are a favourite point of entry for burglars as demonstrated earlier in this message. More detailed advice can be obtained from

You can also report information regarding criminal activity anonymously to Crime Stoppers by ringing 0800 555111.

You may find the attached poster of interest particularly at this time of year.

This is the end of the message.
