Burglar flees on bike with chainsaw
5:14pm Sunday 25th August 2013 in News
A CHAINSAW was among thousands of pounds worth of electrical goods stolen by a house burglar who fled on a push bike.
Police say the offender made off with two Hewlett Packard laptops – red and blue in colour – two iPads, a boxed iPhone, a new and boxed Samsung Galaxy and a Nikon D3199 camera after ransacking the property in Crabwood Road in the Maybush area of Southampton.
He gained entry by smashing the rear window of the house and fled on a push bike after being disturbed by the 45- year-old male homeowner.
The incident happened at around 2.15pm on Friday, August 16.
Also missing are a fishing tackle bag containing a Shimano Trynos 20 reel and other fishing tackle.
Detectives want to hear from anyone who saw the burglar riding away or anyone who has been offered such items for sale.
Contact Det Con Patrick Coughlin at Shirley CID on 101.
