Rushcliffe Police are asking residents to be especially vigilant at the moment after a number of reports of break-ins in Ruddington over the last two weeks.
Our village has been targeted by criminals on numerous occasions this year, with burglaries along Brookside Road and Grange Avenue in March, Salcombe Crescent in April and Pasture Lane in May – plus vehicle break-ins on Bladon Road, Upper Canaan and Peacock Close in July and Woodhouse Gardens in August – amongst others.
Now, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector, Craig Berry, reports: “On the 14th September there was a house burglary reported on Leys Road. Then on Thursday 21st there was a daytime burglary on Loughborough Road and finally yesterday, 24/25th September, there was walk-in burglary into an insecure house on Clifton Lane over a 24 hour period.”
The force is also reporting a number of break-ins over in West Bridgford, which may be connected. Inspector Berry adds: “We are increasing patrols but we request that residents of Ruddington village are vigilant and report any person or vehicle acting suspiciously.”
So, if you have seen anything suspicious, or have any CCTV footage, you’re asked to call Nottinghamshire Police as soon as possible on 101.
