LAST week we received quite a few calls and the information has been passed on to the officers in the cases.

So thanks – keep those calls coming in please.

Just to remind you that a reward will be paid to people calling in if the information results in the arrest of the offender and subsequent charge.

If you have any information about any crime then pick up the phone and ring the Crimestoppers number in confidence.

Now please take a look at this week’s list of crimes and see if you can help.



Between 9am and 6pm on Wednesday, July 2, a house in Limestone Close, Hartshorne, was targeted by thieves, the house was empty at the time. The culprits used an object to force the rear window of the property. They did not take anything from the house.

Were you in the area at the time? Did you see anything suspicious?

If you can help us to find the thieves responsible then call the Crimestoppers team and quote reference: 27767/14.



Between 8am and 7.15pm on Tuesday, July 8 a house in Broughton Close, in Church Broughton, had a quantity of jewellery stolen during a burglary. The offender has smashed the glass in the patio door and searched several rooms in the home.

The house is in a cul-de-sac and any strange vehicles or persons there would have stood out. Did you see anything? Let us know if you did by calling police as soon as possible?



Between 12.15pm and 4pm on July 8 in Twyford Close, Willington, a Vauxhall Signum had its rear number plate stolen. In the same location at around the same time a Suzuki Grand Vitara also had its front number plate taken.

We have experienced an increase in this type of offence over the last couple of months especially in the Hilton, Etwall and Willington area.

Have you seen anyone acting suspiciously around the front or rear of vehicles? Have you seen anyone with number plates which weren’t from their own vehicle?

If so then call the Crimestoppers team and quote reference: 28324/14



At noon on Thursday, July 10 two Eastern European males went into a hairdressers on High St, Swadlincote touting for business with leaflets. While staff were distracted, the males stole two mobile phones.

It appears that the males also visited other shops in the High Street. Did you see them? Did you see where they went? Did you see if they were in a vehicle? If so call Crimestoppers and quote reference 28629/14
