Man arrested in connection with Gosport burglary series

Officers investigating a series of burglaries in Gosport have arrested a man.

We have had reports of seven incidents between 20 June and 3 July this year, with properties in Tukes Avenue, Village Road, Brookers Lane, Molesworth Road and The Anchorage targeted.

Bank cards and electrical items such as Xbox controllers, an Apple watch and Nintendo Switch have been reported stolen.

A 23-year-old man from Gosport has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and remains in custody at this time.

With the summer months upon us, and while we have seen a rise in temperatures, it is more tempting than ever to leave windows and doors open to let the cool air in.

Many thieves are opportunists and can reach in or enter through insecure windows and doors to steal what they can, especially ground floor windows.

Officers will be conducting dedicated patrols in the local area, particularly late at night, and we encourage the local community to visit the Crime Prevention page on our website for more information on how to keep your address secure:
