‘Men in black’ seen breaking into house as crime spree sweeps Kingsholm

Police are warning people to keep their homes and cars secure after a spate of break-ins across Kingsholm.

Residents were warned after a burglary in Hamer Street on Monday.

At around 8.55am that day two men forced entry to a house by forcing the rear door with a crowbar or a similar tool. They fled when they were disturbed by the occupier of the house.

The offenders were described as wearing all black clothing and face coverings. Police say the owners had been away on holiday until the day before so the burglars may have assumed the house was empty.

Monday’s burglary followed a string of break-ins across Kingsholm this month.
