Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Two in custody following overnight burglary – Bristol

We have a man and a boy in custody today, Wednesday 10 June, after a householder reported disturbing someone in their Brislington home in the middle of the night.

Officers including a dog handler attended after the call at 3.10am. The householder reported a wallet had been stolen and the offenders made off. Two suspects were arrested by the dog handler in nearby Eton Road on suspicion of burglary.

We’ve carried out house-to-house enquiries and the investigation continues.

If you have any information which could help, get in touch quoting reference 5220126049.

To keep your home secure we advise:

  • locking up and setting the alarm, if you have one, at night as well as when you go out 
  • making sure your door is locked by turning the key – some ‘paddle and stub’-handled doors might seem to be locked by lifting the handle, but can still be opened from outside 
  • keeping doors and windows locked if you’re not in the same room
  • never leaving keys in the lock or in sight of the letterbox
  • fitting a letterbox cage
  • keeping car keys, handbags, wallets and other portable valuables out of sight 
  • joining Neighbourhood Watch
