People in Carlisle urged to lock their doors

Police in Carlisle are urging people to lock their doors following recent burglaries.

There have been two burglaries in the last few days where offenders have entered properties via unlocked front doors.

The first occurred between 5pm and 6:30pm on 31st January on Creighton Avenue, where keys were stolen to a Fiat Punto which was subsequently stolen. The car was later recovered, and two men (aged 22 and 25) were arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

The second occurred between 10pm 1st February and 2:30am 2nd February on Wetheral Street, where unknown offender(s) stole a box of change totalling approximately £200 and cigarettes.

Sgt Steve Whitehead said:

“These burglaries demonstrate how opportunistic criminals can be, and why it is so important to lock your doors and windows. I would urge everyone to keep their property as safe and secure as possible at all times. Where people become victims of crimes, we work hard to find those responsible and bring them to justice. Together we can help keep Carlisle a safe place to live and work.”

The two men have been bailed until 8th February.

Anyone with any information about the above crimes should call Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for Carlisle CID, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
