On Thursday 3rd September, between noon and 3.30pm, burglars entered Five Elms in Hollow Way. They locked themselves in the house, ransacked every cupboard and drawer for jewellery, antiques and valuables, and let themselves out by the back French doors. When one of the owners returned at 3.30pm they were unable to enter by the front door and called the police. If you noticed anyone or anything unusual, either near Five Elms (house on left hand side leaving the village before Court House) or elsewhere in the village this afternoon, PLEASE HELP BY CALLING THE POLICE TO REPORT IT NOW (101).
Also - Between 5.15pm on Sunday (30/8) and 8.30am on Monday (31/8), The Church of St Mary in Buscot, was burgled. Offenders gained entry via a rear window and stole candle holders and candles. The candle holders were found and recovered outside the church. Between Friday (28/8) and Tuesday (1/9), the Church of All Saints in Coleshill, was burgled. Offenders smashed a rear window to gain entry. Items were moved around inside the church, but it is not known at this time if any property was stolen.
