POLICE are investigating a spate of thefts in Tiddington.

The village has been hit with four incidents in the space of a week - three of which happened on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning (May 8 and 9).

At around 4am on Wednesday a resident was disturbed by intruders who entered a house, in Carters Lane.

They stole a laptop computer, handbag and other items but ran out of the property when they were disturbed, running in the direction of Main Street.

The men are described as both being white and wearing jeans and hoodies.

The laptop computer was recovered by the owner in the street outside, and other items including a wallet and a mobile phone were also recovered. The handbag remains missing.

At another address in Carters Lane a car was broken into some time overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday and the interior searched - a wallet was taken form the vehicle.

And on the same night a moped was stolen from outside a property, in Rivermead Drive, and was later found abandoned at around 4.15am in Lawson Avenue.

These incidents followed another a week earlier, on Wednesday May 2, when two laptop computers and a printer were discovered to have been stolen overnight in a burglary at an address in Hamilton Road.

Police are investigating the incidents and want to hear from anyone who may have seen any unusual or suspicious activity in the area.

Rich Thomas, Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant for Stratford, said Tiddington normally has a very low crime rate and described the recent incidents as 'out of the ordinary'.
