Over the recent weeks there have been a number of house burglaries within the residential estates of Knaresborough and the out laying villages.
The offenders have been targeting houses where vehicles have been the primary target. Whilst the vehicles have been the target, there have been a few incidents where the offenders have taken small electrical items such as iPads, laptops, mobile phones. The target houses have been empty at the time of the offences.
Whilst this has been a traumatic time for the victims, North Yorkshire Police have been successful in recovering some of the stolen vehicles but would appreciate the public’s help in capturing the offenders and stolen property by passing any information on that may help us.
