Appeal for witnesses to burglary in Farnborough

Police are appealing for witnesses for a burglary/ robbery in Farnborough yesterday at around 2pm.

Officers are investigating a burglary at a residential property on Fairfax Road, which turned into a robbery, when the offenders discovered someone was home.

Three masked men are believed to have forced open a back garden gate and entered the house through an unlocked door at the rear of the building.

They threatened the woman homeowner and stole a number of high value items of jewellery and a safe. The victim was left with bruising but not injured.

The offenders left the house on foot towards the direction of Worcester Road.

Inspector Olga Venner from Aldershot police station said:

"This was a frightening ordeal for the family. This burglary happened early yesterday afternoon, when it was daylight and it's highly likely there would have been people around.

We are appealing for anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious to call police on 101. Did you see a group of men acting suspiciously in Fairfax Road, Marston Drive or Worcester Close? Did you see silver BMW in the area around 2pm yesterday?

We know that this area has a closely linked community and we would like to reassure that we are investigating this incident and want to identify or locate the offenders involved.

We'd encourage anyone who becomes a victim to contact police as soon as possible, call 999 if you are at all worried someone is trying to break you're your home, unfortunately on this occasion there was a delay in it being reported to police. Please don't be worried about calling us to report a crime or anything suspicious in your local community. This is the first burglary in the area since July and we are working hard to catch these offenders and to prevent these crimes."



Please follow this crime prevention advice:
