Witness Appeal - Attempted Burglaries And Theft

Witnesses and dashcam are sought after several attempted break-ins and the theft of a car in Swale.

Officers are investigating 10 incidents in which four men are alleged to have targeted houses and vehicles over seven days in September.

At around 2am on Friday 22nd September, an attempt was made to enter a home in Aspen Drive until the four suspects were disturbed by a neighbour.

Similar reports were received around an hour later in Nelson Avenue, where a group of people were seen trying to break into two properties.

Later that morning, offenders sought to gain access to a house and a vehicle in Southsea Avenue, and a black MG was stolen from Jasmin Close.

Kent Police were notified of further attempted burglaries during early hours in Faversham and Sittingbourne, between Saturday 23 and Friday 27 September.

The four suspects are described as wearing grey tracksuits with the hoods worn up. They also had black gloves and dark shoes. One man was carrying a black bag over his shoulder and holding what was believed to be a notebook. They all had their faces covered.

Investigating officer PC Georgina Harris of Swale’s Criminal Investigation Department told SFM News: "While the suspects were unsuccessful in their attempts to get into the properties they were targeting, we are linking all the reports and are urging anyone with information that may identify those responsible to contact our appeal line. Drivers with dashcam and residents with CCTV are also asked to check for relevant footage."

Anyone with any information is asked to call Kent Police on 01795 419119 quoting reference 46/170845/23 or, alternatively, they can contact Kent Crimestoppers FREE and anonymously on 0800 555 111 or by using the online form on their website.
