Would-be Barrow thieves scared off by dog

TWO men tried to enter a property in Barrow but were scared off by the occupant’s dog.

Police said there have been a few recent sneak-in burglaries in the town.

Last night, two males were reported as acting suspiciously in the Anson Street area.

They were described as being white, aged around 20, with one wearing a dark green hoodie and the other a white hoodie.

A police spokeswoman said: “Sneak-in burglaries tend to occur during the evenings or overnight by opportunist thieves who are wandering the streets looking for insecure doors and windows.

“We would ask you to be more vigilant ensuring whenever possible that your doors and windows are locked.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting log number CP-20131023-0267, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
