Alert over Grantham daytime burglary rise

A series of daytime burglaries in a Lincolnshire town have prompted a warning from police.

In the past two days, houses in several roads in Grantham have seen windows smashed and items taken.

Sandcliffe Road, Hawksdale Close, Western Road, Fletcher Street and Saltersford Grove have all been targeted.

Officers said as the crimes happen during the day, residents might well have seen suspicious activity.

Police added they had stepped up patrols in the area, but were keen to get an accurate description of the offenders.

Insp Phil Taylor said: "All of these offences are happening in daylight and someone must have seen or heard some suspicious activity.

"If you see anyone hanging around properties in your road then call us immediately - you are never wasting our time and you might just help us catch these offenders."
