Police appeal after three burglaries in Boston

BURGLARS have attacked three homes in Boston over the space of four days, stealing electrical equipment, mobile phones and cash.

THE first took place at a home in Cromwell Close on Friday, between 2.20-3pm.

Police said the offender climbed over a rear fence and distracted the female occupier by ringing the front doorbell before entering through an insecure door.

They snatched a handbag before escaping back over the fence into the country park. The handbag, which was empty, was thrown back into the garden the following day.

The offender is described as a white male, approx 6’1” tall, wearing dark gloves with velcro fastening at the wrists, a blue top and dark hair or hat.

The second burglary took place in Sibsey Road on Saturday, between 3.30-4.30pm.

The offender gained access through an insecure door and stole a handbag and a mobile phone from the kitchen. The handbag was later found with purse and cards still inside, but cash and two mobile phones had been stolen.

Then on Monday, between midnight and 4am, a home in Carlton Road was targeted with the burglar entering through an open first floor window before taking an Advent notebook, cash and Xbox 360 games console.
