Burglaries reported in Marlow, Flackwell Heath and Bourne End
SEVEN more burglaries were reported in south Bucks over the weekend - prompting a leading policeman to vow "these incidents cannot continue".
Electrical items and jewellery were stolen during a number of break-ins in Marlow, Bourne End and Flackwell Heath at the weekend.
It follows a spate of previous thefts in the Penn and Hazlemere area in December and January, as well as in Marlow and Flackwell Heath.
A total of 25 people were subsequently arrested and police investigating the latest crime spree say they have important leads as they track down the culprits.
Insp Nino Brancato said: "We believe that it is possible that these burglaries are linked and I would like to appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area, to contact us.
"We have had reports that there have been three white men and a grey Audi in the area when some of burglaries have happened and I urge anyone who might have seen these men in the area, or the car, to let us know."
Deputy Area Commander, Ch Insp Colin Seaton, said: "We have made a number of arrests in relation to burglaries but these incidents cannot continue.
"I have a dedicated team of detectives thoroughly investigating every burglary we have reported to us to ensure that we catch those responsible and that they are brought to justice but we need you to help us to stop any more from happening.
"Most burglars are opportunists and we want to make it as hard as possible for them to be able to offend. The neighbourhood team and additional officers have been patrolling the area and we will continue to carry out frequent patrols in the area until these burglaries stop."
Burglars struck in Heath End Road, Flackwell Heath, Wabourne Road, Bourne End, Fieldhouse Way, Chiltern Road and Dedmere Road in Marlow and Little Marlow Road.
Anyone with any information about the burglaries should contact Thames Valley Police on 101 or the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
