A 48 year old woman returned home in the nick of time to discover her property bagged up and ready to go.


The incident happened on Thursday 12th October in Grove Park Gardens.  The female victim returned home at 10.25 to hear noises coming from upstairs.


She went up and discovered a bedroom window open and bags full of her property ready to be removed from the house.


Police believe that entry had been gained by smashing a rear ground floor window and it was probable that any suspects would have made off at the back of the house.


Any information to DC Stuart Hobkirk in the Burglary Squad on 020 8247 5940.
