Officers from Poole Police have stepped up patrols in Canford Heath after a recent surge in reported incidents in the area.
A spokesperson for Poole Police said: “Neighbourhood policing team officers have been patrolling the area of Canford Heath after a recent spate of burglaries in the area.
“Please remain vigilant and ensure all doors windows and outbuildings are locked and secured, and report any incidents to Dorset Police.”
Local resident James Burn told Global247news how he was burgled, he said: ” It looks like they got in through my top kitchen window and then opened the larger one from inside – they ransacked the house and took all the valuable items they could find, the police think they had a waiting car because they even stole my TV and Sky box”
“I don’t think these are professionals though, my gut feeling is they are druggies seeking cash for their next fix”
