We are re-issuing our crime prevention advice as an investigation is underway into possible burglaries in the Burgh le Marsh area.
Three suspected burglaries have taken place in the area in the last two weeks - properties targeted have been on Walls Avenue and Storeys Lane, Burgh le Marsh, and Spilsby Road in Wainfleet – in which an offender or offenders have entered homes and carried out relatively tidy searches inside. They have targeted and taken selective jewellery, watches and loose change.
You can do several things to protect your home from opportunistic burglars - letting trusted neighbours know you’re away, leaving lights on timers, and ensuring Ring doorbell and CCTV are activated if you have them. For more in-depth information, please visit our crime prevention pages to ensure your property is as safe as possible, especially if you plan to be away from it over the festive period.
We would also like to hear from anyone with any information that could help the investigation. If you saw or heard anything or anyone suspicious in the area during the last fortnight, please get in touch with us on 101 or [email protected]. Sometimes, the smallest piece of information can significantly help the investigation. Please quote any of the below incident numbers when contacting us.
