Burglary Alert

Driffield: Help catch the culprits

13 Apr 2015

Police are warning Driffield residents to be vigilant following a spate of burglaries in the town. 

All three offences involved the suspect forcing their way into houses and stealing property.

1. Between midnight on February 19 and 7pm on April 10 a house on Woodland Rise was entered through a locked door. The door was damaged and thousands of pounds of jewellery stolen including a Gents Cyma watch, a gents Raymond Weil watch, a gold wedding ring, gold cuff links and a women’s gold chain and earring set. Crime Reference 2107364.

2. Between 5pm on April 2 and 11am on April 4 a house on The Mount was burgled. Patio doors were forced and a large amount of jewellery stolen including two gold chains, gold earrings and a gold charm bracelet. Crime Reference 2106121.

3. Between 6pm on April 2 and 12.30pm on April 3 a house on Woodland Rise was entered. Damage was caused to an external door and hundreds of pounds of jewellery was stolen and cash taken.  Crime Reference 2105968.

Handling stolen goods is a crime.  Knowingly buying stolen goods is an offence that can carry a longer prison sentence than from actually stealing them.  If you know anyone who is selling or buying stolen goods report them to police.

If you saw or heard anything in relation to these burglaries or know the whereabouts of the stolen property call Humberside Police on 101 or  Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting the above crime reference numbers.

We would like to help people to help themselves to protect their property. See our crime prevention advice for further details.
