NUNEATON and Bedworth police officers have warned town centre business owners of a rise in commercial burglaries which have taken place over the last few weeks.

Some town centre businesses have been hit by the spate of recent thefts overnight as well as in the early hours of the morning.

This has since prompted local police officers to issue a social media statement on Facebook yesterday evening (Tuesday, 2 December).

Officers have urged town centre business owners to ensure that their windows, doors and shutters are closed, locked and secured to prevent them from being burgled.

They further stressed that the business owners should check that their CCTV cameras are turned on – and that they do not dismiss any alarms or movements at the premises, if any notifications are received through motion detection technology apps.

In the post, it was made public knowledge that an ongoing investigation has been launched into the burglaries.

They said: “The Nuneaton Town and Central Safer Neighbourhood Team are investigating the recent spate of burglaries and collating evidence in order to try and identify an offender which is progressing at pace.”

Any members of the public who have witnessed what they believe to be a ‘suspicious incident’ are being asked to go directly to the Police, especially if it has taken place in the early hours.

Officers explained that this is because: “There have been occasions in recent weeks whereby people have chosen to share concerns/incidents on social media forums rather than notify the Police.”

If town-goers spot a crime in progress, or you are the victim of a crime, call 999, alternatively, call the non-emergency police number of 101, or report it through the Warwickshire Police website.
