Nottinghamshire Police are urging Wollaton residents to be vigilant after a recent burglary took place in the area.

On Friday January 21 between 4:30pm and 11pm, an intruder entered a family home on Rushford Drive, Wollaton, where they stole a number of rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and a gold chain anklet.

The city burglary team are currently carrying out enquiries in the area including checking CCTV footage.

Police Constable Imran Ahmed, of the burglary team, said: “We know burglary can have a significant and long-lasting impact on victims, both financially and emotionally, and that is why we are working hard to track down whoever committed this crime and bring them to justice.

“We want everyone to feel safe in their own homes, with minimal risk to their valuables, and we are continuing to work hard to stop burglaries from happening in the first place, including sharing crime prevention advice.

“As part of this ongoing preventative work we are urging people to check their home security and make sure they are not leaving themselves vulnerable to burglars.

“Windows should also be kept locked where possible to deter burglars and sheds and outbuildings should be left secure so tools can’t be used by burglars to break into properties.”

Officers are appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious activity around the time of the incident on Rushford Drive.

If anyone has any information, they are urged to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, by quoting the incident 812 on 21 January or Crimestoppers anonymously on 08000 555 111.
