Alert message sent 17/05/2019 15:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police


Detectives investigating a burglary in Leighton Buzzard have released CCTV images of a man and a woman we would like to speak to as part of their enquiries.

At around 11:46am on 26 April, a man gained access to a house on Hockliffe Road by using a sharp object to open a window.

Detective Constable Michael Wallis, investigating, said: “We are looking identify the two people who appear in the CCTV as we believe they may be able to help us in our enquiries.

“We would like to reassure residents that we are continuing to take burglary offences seriously, particularly following a recent spike in Leighton Buzzard.

“Burglary is one of our force’s priorities as we understand the impact this type of crime can have on the victim, which often leaves them feeling scared and vulnerable in their own home.

“We have a dedicated team, Operation Maze, which deals with burglary dwelling offences across the county and provides a more efficient and effective way of dealing with high instances of offending in certain areas and prolific burglars.

“As well as providing advice to residents on how to make their homes secure and keep their personal belongings safe, we are also encouraging people to report any suspicious activity they see. This helps us build a bigger picture of what is happening in the locality so we know which areas we need to target.”

Please view the images and to see our tips and advice on how to prevent burglary here.

If you have any information in relation to the CCTV images, please call DC Wallis on 101, quoting reference number 40/23705/19.
