Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following three burglaries, believed to be linked, at a property in Farnham Lane, Slough.

The first incident occurred on Friday 1 February sometime between midnight and 11.45am. The offenders gained access to the property through a rear ground floor window and stole a quantity of cash.

The second incident took place at the property on Tuesday (5/2) between 6.30pm and 7.30pm. The offenders gained access through an open rear door. A lap top was stolen along with a Kindle, mobile phone and keys to the property. A car key was also stolen along with the vehicle which was parked outside.

At around 3am on Wednesday (6/2), the offenders drove back to the address in the stolen car and tried to gain access to the property using the set of keys taken earlier. The offenders were unsuccessful as the property had been secured. After being disturbed, the offenders left the scene leaving behind the stolen car.

The victims, a 92-year old man and an 89-year-old woman, were home at the time of the three incidents.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Mark Barnikel from the Slough Investigation Hub, said: “I am appealing for any witnesses who may have seen or heard anything unusual at the time of these incidents.

“The victims have been left shaken following the stress and worry that these incidents have caused. 

“Thames Valley Police takes reports of burglary extremely seriously and will investigate thoroughly to bring offenders to justice.”
