Burglars target house in broad daylight

Burgled: Offenders stole electronics from a house on a busy Lincoln road in broad daylight.

Police are looking for burglars who stole a big TV set from a house on the busy Hykeham Road in broad daylight on January 6.

This incident took place between 2pm and 4pm in Hykeham Road, Lincoln.

Offenders broke in through a window at the back of the property and stole a 46-in LCD TV, an electric bike, a laptop, a Wii with Wii Fit board and Guitar Hero and a set of keys.

Police say it is likely more than one person committed this burglary due to the size of the TV and they may well have used a vehicle.

Hykeham Road would have been fairly busy at this time and police are asking anyone who saw any suspicious activity to call them as soon as possible.

Anyone with information is urged to call Lincolnshire Police on 0300 111 0300 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
