Colchester: Police appeal for information over burglary in Broadlands Way

Detectives are appealing for information following a burglary in Colchester.

The break-in happened when thieves forced their way into the rear of a house on Broadlands Way during Monday daytime and ransacked the house before stealing a three-figure sum of jewellery.

Investigating Officer, Dc Andrea Ford, said: “These burglars caused a significant amount of damage to the property when they broke in through the back door.

“We want people to cast their minds back to Monday daytime and recall if they saw anyone acting suspiciously on this small housing estate. If they did, then they could help identify the perpetrators behind this home invasion.”

A forensic examination of the property was conducted, with house-to-house enquiries also completed.

Anyone with information in connection with this burglary is urged to contact detectives at Colchester police station on 101.
