Police warning issued after 'opportunistic' jewellery burglary

Police have urged residents in Burnham-On-Sea to be extra vigilant after a burglar stole jewellery from a house in the town on Saturday evening (August 7th).

Officers were called to South Terrace after a shocked resident discovered she had been targeted by an opportunistic thief.

Inspector Roger Tolley told "The victim had been cleaning her car when the burglary took place."

"The lady had left her door open, allowing the burglar to enter the building and steal a quantity of jewellery."

He added: "We would ask people to be extra vigilant and not to become a victim of opportunistic theives. It's easy to get lulled into a false sense of security on quiet, warm evenings."
