Heart Attack Caused By A Burglary

Burglaries can be really difficult to solve because often there are no witnesses, evidence or matching forensics. High-definition CCTV, digital video doorbells and forensic marking liquids are helping us to capture more evidence than ever before.

As part of our efforts to promote safer days and nights, as well as burglary deterrents that also capture evidence, we’re giving away one free video doorbell.

Burglary caused a heart attack:

‘Sarah’ from the Cotswolds suffered a heart attack after being burgled. She returned home to find a lifetime of memories, including her father’s medals and mother’s wedding ring, gone. She immediately broke down and felt an awful pain in her chest.

Burglary advice:

Burglary is an appalling crime. Its impact can be emotional, psychological, financial and physical.

Burglars look for opportunities. They want to find empty-looking homes, where they can’t be seen by neighbours and where they can get in and out quickly. Take away their opportunities by installing the ‘WIDE’ combination of security devices and by carrying out the actions on our burglary webpage: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/police-forces/gloucestershire-constabulary/areas/gloucestershire/campaigns/campaigns/2019/burglary/


Can you identify any of these people?

There are a number of images on our website of people we would like to talk to in relation to burglaries. Can you help us identify them? Take a look here: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/police-forces/gloucestershire-constabulary/areas/gloucestershire/intel/id-sought/
