Neighbourhood officers are asking residents in the villages immediately surrounding Banbury to check their security measures following a recent increase in house burglaries.
Five incidents have been reported in the last fortnight in the villages of Wroxton, Shutford, Cropredy, Upper Tadmarton and further, towards Chipping Norton. Officers making door-to-door enquiries believe that it’s possible that other attempts on nearby properties have also occurred but not been reported to police.
Any suspicious activity or individuals must be reported to 101 unless you are witnessing a crime in action when you should dial 999.
