Police alert as homes are hit

A spate of burglaries thought to be linked has prompted a warning from police.

Between 1am and 3am on Monday, January 7, houses in Lawrence Fields and Dashwood Rise in Steeple Aston, and Main Street in Duns Tew were broken into.

In Lawrence Fields the occupant was woken by a person trying her patio door handle.

The man was in his late teens, white, 5ft 2ins tall, wearing trainers, a dark hooded top and carrying a torch.

Later in the night, a short distance away in Duns Tew, two homes were broken into.

An iPod Nano, Blackberry Touch, a hard drive, two Dell laptops, a Macbook Pro laptop, two laptop chargers and £40 were taken.

Officers believe the burglaries were connected.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
