Increase in Burglaries

Alert message sent 14/08/2021 23:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Good evening

This alert is being sent out to you to make you aware of the recent increase in burglaries in the Romsey East area.

Over the last 10 days we have received reports of outbuildings being entered/forced and also attempts (where the offender(s) have been unsuccessful with gaining entry)  
Items stolen include pushbikes, tools and jewellery. These have occurred in North Baddelsey, Rownhams and Knightwood.

If you happen to disturb anyone on your property, please do not hesitate to call 999. Alternatively if you wake or return to find you've been a victim of a burglary please call 101.

There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself, such as:
• Don’t leave valuables on show through unscreened windows, 
• If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly, pulling curtains when your timer switches are due to come on..
• Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.
• Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.
• Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.
• Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.
• If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.


Thank you for taking the time to read this alert.
