Bungling burglars fail to raid Rufford home
by David Simister

RESIDENTS have been urged to be on the alert against burglars after the owners of a home in Rufford were targeted during a bungled break-in.

Policem said a home on Liverpool Road was approached by would-be thieves at around 3.20pm on JUne 21 but after failing to smash a panel in the front door and an upstairs window were disturbed by the house alarm and abandoned their attempt.

PS Paul Bamber said: “This attempted burglary is an important reminder that is important to lock all the doors and windows, no matter which floor of the house they are situated on. If anyone hears a neighbour's alarm, they should contact the police and report the incident.

”It is important to report any suspicious activity to the police as this incident clearly shows, whether it is a vehicle parked outside your neighbour's house or strangers who are walking up and down your street. Each call made to the police is taken seriously and a patrol will be dispatched to investigate further.“

If you see any suspicious activity, contact Lancashire Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
