Burglars attempted to break-in to a property located on De-La-Bere Crescent, Burbage, between the hours of 1.30pm to 4pm on the day.

They tried to gain access into the property through the back, however, they were unsuccessful in their attempts to enter.

Members of Leicestershire Police’s Burbage Beat Team have suggested that they potentially entered through the Aston Lane area.

Now, Burbage PCSO Darren Stretton, who patrols the area, has urged people to ensure that their properties ‘look occupied’.

PCSO Stretton has further suggested that residents ask their neighbours to park on their drive whilst out, use lights timers, and set house alarms.

He further recommended investing in window alarms, cactus spikes and other items.

Back in April, when another property was targeted, a spokesperson for the Beat Team previously advised: “Please try and make properties look occupied by tidying the garden, removing post, and using blinds rather than curtains.”
