Police appeal after Chelveston burglary


Police officers are appealing for witnesses after a residential burglary in Water Lane, Chelveston.

Between 5.40pm and 6.20pm on Wednesday, January 12, three men entered the rear garden and used a ladder to try to gain entry to the house via a rear first floor window.

After their attempt was unsuccessful, the men disconnected the garden lights and smashed the rear patio door before making an untidy search of the house and stealing a safe containing jewellery and cash.

The offenders were white men, aged 20-25 years, and of a slim build. They were wearing hooded tops, jogging bottoms, trainers and face coverings.

Officers investigating this burglary would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a silver MINI with a black roof which was seen acting suspiciously near to the address and surrounding area.

Anyone who may have any information regarding this incident is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
