Thieves smash into vehicles parked at leisure centres

Have your say

AFRICAN jewellery, laptops and a 42-inch television were stolen during a raid on a rural home.

The burglary took place in Speltham Hill, Hambledon.

Crooks got into the courtyard at the back of the house and then forced open a kitchen window.

They then searched the property and made off with African jewellery, including a three carat diamond ring.

Two white Apple MacBook laptops were taken and an LCD television.

PC Craig Robinson said: ‘It is thought that the offender/s used a vehicle to drive to and from the scene, given the relatively remote location and the fact that a boxed 42 inch television was taken.’

The burglary took place last Thursday some time between 9.30am and 3pm.

Call PC Robinson at North Walls police station on 101.
