Have your say

Police have reminded residents to fully lock windows and doors after a spate of burglaries in Fareham, Locks Heath and Hill Head.

Eight reports have been received since the end of July where attempts have been made to enter detached homes by using tools to force UPVC doors and windows.

For the homes where entry has been gained jewellery and cash was taken.

At an address on Silver Birch Avenue, that was broken into, two men were seen acting suspiciously on Friday, September 4, at 9:30pm.

If anyone believes to have seen these men they are asked to contact police.

It is unclear whether these burglaries are all linked but officers are investigating.

Vulnerable areas have been prioritised by officers on patrols,

Police would like to speak to anyone who has been offered a number of distinctive items of jewellery for sale, including a silver four leaf clover broach with pearls on it.

An 18 carat gold engagement ring with a sapphire and a diamond on each side was taken from a Crawford Drive home in Fareham.

And a 22 carat plain gold wedding ring with an inscription on the inside featuring two names and the date 29.8.70 was taken from a Crescent Road home in Locks Heath.
