Chelmsford: Police appeal following spate of burglaries
3:21pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
Police are looking to identify and potentially eliminate two young men from their ongoing enquiries following a recent spate of burglaries in Chelmsford which has seen one occur every day in September.
The spike has triggered a response by the neighbourhood policing team to undertake an enhanced level of high-visibility and undercover policing to reduce the numbers and catch the burglars.
DCI Louise Beattie is hoping a "partnership approach” will resolve the problem.
"We will do our bit to eradicate this recent crime spike, but as ever we need the eyes of the local community to help us. We remind homeowners to secure their properties."
The two young men pictured were in the Aldi supermarket area of Springfield on Monday, September 9 and may have seen the burglars at work. They or anyone who knows them is urged to contact police.
September has seen 20 house burglaries recorded by police already.
Anyone with information should contact detectives at Chelmsford police station on 101 or if they see any ongoing suspicious activity police on 999.
