This is a Community Message to all residents in Aylesbury Vale on Tuesday 16 August.

Over the last month there have been a number of burglaries to homes across Aylesbury Vale where offenders are using the unusual method of entry of jemmying the front door.

Offences are often occurring overnight on week days. Small items are being stolen including car keys. A number of higher value vehicles are then being stolen from the addresses. BMW’s and Audi’s have been targeted in particular.

Police are advising house holders to make sure their front doors are double locked and car keys hidden. Some of the homes targeted had PVC doors which were only single locked at the time of the offences.

Further security and crime prevention advice can also be found on our website and click on the ‘crime prevention’ tab or by calling the 24 hour non emergency number 0845 8 505 505.
