Do you recognise these men?


Officers investigating three attempted garage breaks in Hursley and Bishops Waltham on Wednesday, 26 January have released further images of three men they would like to speak to in connection with the incidents.

The first incident took place at an address in Hoe Road, Bishops Waltham between 1.35am and 1.45am. A group of three men were captured on CCTV trying car door handles before walking down the side of the property, whilst looking over fences and into windows. The group then continued into the back garden where they entered a small outbuilding.

The second incident took place between 5am and 5.10am in Collins Lane, Hursley. Two men were captured on CCTV trying garage doors, opening one that had been left unlocked.

The third incident took place between 7.17pm and 7.20pm in Gunners Mews, Bishops Waltham. Four men wearing hoods and masks were captured on CCTV going into an underground car park, looking into the windows of peoples properties and garages.

Nothing was stolen in any of these incidents.

Police are treating the three incidents as being linked.

Officers know two of the images aren’t great but officers are keen to speak to these men.

Do you recognise them? Perhaps you recognise their clothing?

Officers continue to ask people who live in these areas to check any privately owned CCTV as it may have captured something that could help our investigation.

Police are also encouraging anyone else who has been affected by similar incidents to report it to them as this allows them to build up a bigger picture of the areas being targeted and when.

If you recognise the men in the CCTV images or have any information or privately owned CCTV that may assist their investigation, please call police on 101 quoting 44220035434.
