Police investigating a burglary in Kimberley Park Road, Falmouth between 4.30am and 5am on Monday 15th August 2016 are appealing for anyone who saw any suspicious activity to come forward.
It is believed that entry to the property was gained through an unsecured ground floor window. A collection of 120 watches was stolen.
A bicycle was stolen from the garage of a nearby property sometime between 6pm on Sunday 14th August and 9.15am on Monday 15th August 2016 after a tidy search of the garage. It does not appear that entry was forced. Police are not treating the offences as related.
Detective Constable Simon Rafferty said: “We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the Kimberley Road area on Sunday 14th or Monday 15th August 2016. In relation to the theft of the watches on the 15th, please quote reference CR/056944/16. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has been offered watches for sale and is uncertain of where they came from.
“Similarly, if you have been offered a bicycle for sale, or if you saw anything suspicious in relation to that theft, please get in touch quoting CR/056515/16”
DC Rafferty continued: “We’d like to remind everyone of the importance of securing their premises at all times, especially at night or if they are away from the property. As the warm weather continues it is tempting to leave windows open but if you are not using a room then all windows should be secured. Also, do not leave keys where they can be easily located such as near letterboxes or catflaps, and keep valuable property out of sight inside your home.”
