Burglar escapes after being disturbed by householder
by David Simister

RAIDERS ransacked a home in Aughton during a burglary last Tuesday morning (March 5), police investigating the incident have confirmed.

Lancashire Constabulary said that a burglar broke into a home on Prescott Road at around 9.30am after smashing a patio door at the rear of the property, while an accomplice waited in a car on the driveway, ready to make a quick getaway.

The burglar searched through one of the bedrooms before being disturbed by the home's occupant, who had been in bed in one of the neighbouring rooms, prompting the intruder to run back at out, scale a locked wooden gate and get away in the waiting car, a black four door saloon which was smaller than a Ford Mondeo.

The burglar has been described as a male who is around 170cms tall, and was wearing jeans and a grey hooded top. If you have any more information about this incident call Lancashire Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
