Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Our colleagues at Thames Valley Police have asked for our assistance with a witness appeal following two linked burglaries in Winslow and Soulbury that may also have links to Eaton Bray.

Two burglaries, which are believed to be linked, have been reported on Tuesday, 1 May in Winslow and Soulbury.


Around 11:30am four white men, wearing black clothing and balaclavas, attempted to force open rear patio doors at a premise on Verney Close, Winslow.

They were spotted by a neighbour, who shouted at them and they left the property. They were seen to get into a small dark blue car, possibly an Audi A1 and drive off at speed.
Reference number 43180131118.


Around midday another attempted burglary was reported on Stewkley Road, Soulbury. One man banged several times on the front door and then, along with three other men hid behind the owner’s cars. They were also using a similarly described car. Reference number 43180131916.


A short time later, a stolen blue Audi A1 was recovered in Eaton Bray, Beds.


Detective Constable Bruce Wilson, based at Aylesbury Police Station, said “We believe these incidents are all linked.


“If anyone saw these men, or this vehicle please get in touch. If you have CCTV at your property and live in these areas, please review it.


“If you have any information please call me on the 24 hour number 101, ask for Thames Valley Police and quote the relevant reference number.”


If you don’t want to speak to the police or give your details you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report it online.
