Cakes stolen as burglars target Tonbridge homes in the heat

The Mead School in Tunbridge Wells gave a professional level performance in the  ISA drama contests

A SPATE of burglaries in north Tonbridge during the heatwave saw thieves make off with a haul of cakes after breaking into a house.

Kent Police is reminding residents to ensure that their homes are secure in warm weather – especially keeping windows shut.

On the same night, a pot of coins was taken from an address nearby after burglars are believed to have gained access to the property through a bathroom window.

A number of properties were targeted last week, and computer tablets and cash have been been reported stolen.

Sergeant Andy Gallon said: ‘It is tempting in this hot weather to leave doors and windows open but by ensuring they are securely locked, residents can make it more difficult for burglars to get in and they are far less likely to hang around and risk getting caught.’

He added: ‘It is also a good idea to make a home appear occupied if you are out and using timers for interior lights or to turn on a radio is a good way of doing this.’
