POLICE are appealing for help from the public after two burglaries in a Hampshire community.

The incidents occurred between 11am and 1.20pm last Friday at two separate properties in the Warsash area – Schooner Way and Warsash Road.

A burglar smashed their way into the properties and stole a number of items.

A police spokesman said: "A set of keys and a vehicle V5 document were stolen from Warsash Road, while various items of jewellery and a quantity of cash were stolen from an address on Schooner Way."

The burglar is described as white and was dressed all in black but was wearing a blue face mask.

Police want to trace a black Audi A3 that was seen nearby and may be linked to the burglary.

The spokesman said: "Did you see what happened? Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you have CCTV, Ring doorbell or dash-cam footage of the Audi?"

Anyone with information can call police on 101, quoting 44210102828 (Warsash Road) and 44210102988 (Schooner Way).

Alternatively they can call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111, where messages can be left anonymously.
