THAMES VALLEY POLICE ALERT

Home Security Advice Following Recent Suspicious Activity

Bracknell Police are advising residents to review their home security following recent suspicious activity.

At 12.57pm on Monday 11 March whilst it was dry and bright, a white adult male with short dark hair dressed in a bright blue hooded coat with fur trim over a black fleece top,  blue jeans, woollen gloves and walking boots, was captured on a residents domestic CCTV acting suspiciously and checking the front door of their home in Staverton Close Priestwood. Audio recording suggests that after he’d satisfied himself that no one was in that he forcibly rattled the front door as if trying to force it open. Thankfully the door locks prevented any entry and the male walked off.

At 1.38pm the same day a resident in Honeyhill Road, saw a white adult male acting suspiciously approaching and looking in through front windows and knocking on front doors of several houses. The male had short dark hair, was wearing a red puffa jacket and had a tattoo below one eye. He was seen to walk off towards Shepherds Lane.

You can greatly reduce your risk of burglary by taking a few simple security measures to help make your property less attractive to thieves. Most burglars are opportunists and target homes and businesses that offer the least risk of being caught.

To keep your home safe and secure:


Burglars often gain access to their victim’s homes through unsecured doors or windows. Making sure your doors are strong and secure, and that all windows are fitted with a lock is a simple way to prevent thieves gaining easy access. You should ensure any lock is certified by the British Standard Institute. For more information on how to protect your home and belongings visit the Thames Valley Police website
