Burglary Operation Makes First Impact

The number of burglaries in Warwickshire has fallen in the first week of a crackdown on people stealing from houses.

Just 17 offences were recorded in the northern half of the county between 2 and 8 May, with 14 crimes in the south.

During the same week last year there were 40 burglaries in the north of the county, and 42 in the south.

Acting Chief Constable Mick Brewer wrote to known offenders in key areas before the crackdown began, warning them to stay out of trouble.

Operation Impact has also involved high-profile action by officers as well as undercover surveillance.

The number of burglaries recorded last week in each area were:

Bedworth 2, Coleshill 3, Nuneaton 3, Rugby 9, Henley-in-Arden 1, Leamington 7, Southam 1, Tanworth-in-Arden 1, Warwick 2, Wellesbourne 2.

The week before Operation Impact there were 22 burglaries in the Nuneaton and Bedworth areas, 14 in Rugby and 20 in south Warwickshire.

Three people have been arrested and charged with burglary.

A 24-year-old man from Stockingford, Nuneaton, appeared at Nuneaton magistrates Court yesterday charged with the burglary of a house in Ansley Road, Nuneaton.

A man aged 26 from Chelmsley Wood, Birmingham, was remanded in custody after being charged with the burglary of a house in Highbrink Road, Coleshill.

And a man of no fixed abode was arrested for the burglary of a house in Wellesbourne on 5 May. He has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
