Burglars on the look-out for Christmas goodies – Fartown, Deighton, Sheepridge, Bradley hit
Jan 9 2010 by Sam Casey, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
WARNINGS have been issued to residents of Fartown, Sheepridge, Bradley and Deighton after a spate of burglaries.
There have been three break-ins in the last three days alone.
The first happened between 7.30pm on Wednesday and 1.30pm on Thursday at Deighton Road in Deighton.
Thieves got in through a patio door before getting away with a haul of goods including Iomega computer drives, a printer, a Nikon digital camera, an Apple iPod and a 32-inch TV.
Another house on Deighton Road was targeted at about 5.30pm on Thursday, when a window was smashed, but nothing was taken.
Burglars then raided a house on Crawthorne Crescent in Bradley at about 10.10pm on Thursday. They took a Nokia mobile phone, a Sky receiver and a 37-inch Panasonic television.
Those burglaries follow incidents on Ripon Avenue and Dewhurst Road in Fartown and Riddings Road and Oxley Road in Sheepridge in the new year.
Det Con Russ Conlon, of Kirklees CID, said the incidents may be linked.
He added: “Take stock of your security. Christmas has just gone and people have new electrical equipment. A lot of money has gone into paying for state-of-the art technology and a similar amount of thought should go into keeping it secure.”
Anyone with information about burglaries contact Huddersfield CID on 01484 436685 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555111.
