Yesterday afternoon between dates/times 09/08/2018 14:30 - 09/08/2018 15:30 we have had a report of a residential burglary in the Catherington Lane area of Horndean.

If you have any information that may help with Police enquiries then please contact us on 101 quoting reference 44180302260.

Advice:

  • Ensure your jewellery is insured and kept in an insurance-rated safe, which is well hidden and secured to the floor or wall. Contact your insurance company for guidance on safety deposit box storage options.
  • Ensure that your property is fully secured. Take this opportunity to look around your property and consider improving any areas of poor security.
  • Don’t be tempted to leave ground floor windows open at night when you are asleep.
  • Make sure your home is kept secure at all times. Use window and door locks, as well as timers that switch lights on to make your home look occupied.
  • If you have a house alarm, set it at night and when you leave your property.
  • As with other valuables, do not leave jewellery on display.
  • Photograph your jewellery. Place your valuables against a plain background with a ruler next to it to give an idea of size. Also take a photo of yourself with the jewellery, so you can prove it has been in your possession.
  • Register your property on a free national property register www.immobilse.com
  • Don’t advertise your jewellery with photographs on social media.
  • Don't advertise your time away from home on social networking sites, and regularly review your security settings.  
  • If you keep a lot of high-valued jewellery at home, consider investing in a monitored alarm system.
  • You might want to use a forensic marking solution to identify your jewellery. You should check with a specialist before marking antique jewellery.

Please ensure you are vigilant at all times, calling police to report any suspicious activity, not just around your own property but anything suspicious in your residential area and community. In an emergency use 999 or 101 for non-emergency. It is not too late to report any suspicious activity to police.
