Two men have been arrested in connection with a series of burglaries in Cinderford.
The men, a 39-year-old and a 45-year-old both from Cinderford, were arrested yesterday (Wednesday 9 February) in connection with a number of break-ins over the past few weeks, including at a hardware store and a school in the area.
Officers are now appealing for anyone with information about the burglaries to come forward.
Local Neighbourhood Officer PC Ben Farley, who is investigating the burglaries, said: “It is not just about the financial loss suffered as a result of these crimes - burglary can have a real emotional impact on victims and the community, making them feel unsafe.
“Burglary is a priority for officers, as we look to bring reassurance to communities and help people feel safe in their own homes.”
Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact Gloucestershire Constabulary through the website, quoting incident 76 of 24 January: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported/
The two men have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
