Ainsdale homes targeted by burglars
by David Simister

TWO homes on the same road in Ainsdale were targeted by burglars last week, police have confirmed.

Officers for Lancashire Constabulary confirmed they were investigating two incidents of break-ins on Segars Lane, near to the border between Sefton and West Lancashire, which both happened last Friday night (February 8).

During the first incident, believed to have taken place between 2.15pm last Friday and 12.15am the following morning, raiders used a large, flat bladed instrument - possibly a screwdriver - to prise open the rear patio doors of a semi-detached bungalow, although in doing so they managed to shatter a double glazed window, which they then kicked in and climbed through. Cupboards and wardrobes in the house were then searched, and a single item of property, which has not been identified by the police, was taken from the home.

Officers also confirmed that burglars broke into a nearby home on the same night in similar circumstances, although in this instance nothing was taken from the property.

If you have any information about either of these incidents, contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
