Dwelling Burglaries

Alert message sent 16/07/2017 18:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Since the beginning of June there have been a number of dwelling burglaries in the west of the New Forest,the primary offence areas are Sway, Hordle and Everton however Barton-on-Sea and Millford-on-Sea have also been affected. The majority of these incidents have occurred while the occupant/owner has been on holiday or away overnight. Hampshire Constabulary has directed extra police resources from other parts of the county to help tackle this issue, including specialist units. Meanwhile, the Neighbourhood Police Teams from New Milton and Lymington have also been proactive in the area.


We would advise that anyone going on holiday uses timer lights and an effective alarm system in order to deter offenders. Asking a trusted friend or relative to ‘house-sit’ is also very effective.

If you see anything you consider suspicious, call 101 to report. descriptions of people and vehicles, including registration numbers are particularly useful.
