We’ve arrested a man after a number of burglary incidents in Filton on Thursday 15 June.
A suspect was arrested on Sunday night, 18 June, in Filton Avenue, Horfield, on suspicion of burglary. A 25-year-old man from Filton remains in police custody at the time of writing.
Neighbourhood Sergeant Steve Ives said: “It’s great that people in Filton are prepared to look out for each other and report suspicious incidents like this – it’s a good deterrent to thieves.
“While you’re enjoying the sun, do please remember to make sure your doors and windows are secure if you’re in another room or outside. It only takes an opportunist thief a moment to walk away with a handbag, wallet, or other portable valuables.”
Remember, if you see someone acting suspiciously around a neighbour’s property, call us straight away. If they’re obviously breaking in, ring 999. Otherwise, call the non-emergency number 101: operators are on hand 24/7.
Anyone with information which could help officers' enquiries into these burglaries is asked to get in touch online, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5217135148.
