Avon and Somerset Police officers from Operation Remedy have launched an appeal for witnesses to a burglary that took place in Keynsham earlier this month.
At around 1.25pm on Tuesday 6th October, someone broke into a house in Banwell Close, which is located off Courtenay Road, while the occupant was out.
It is thought the offenders were disturbed while in the house, so fled empty-handed.
A light coloured BMW was spotted in the area at the time, so could be linked to the offence.
Investigating officer from Operation Remedy, Alastair Binnie, said: “While on this occasion the offenders didn’t steal anything, it is still very distressing for the occupant to have had someone in their house.
“Given it happened during the middle of the day, there would have been people in the area that might have seen some suspicious activity, so I would encourage them to get in touch.
“To help prevent burglaries, ensure that your house is always safe and secure. Don’t leave windows and doors unlocked, even if you are just popping to the shop.
“If you have an alarm, make sure it’s on when you go out. Store valuables away so that they can’t be seen.”
Operation Remedy is a proactive campaign across Avon and Somerset that targets residential burglary, knife crime and the illegal supply of controlled drugs.
