POLICE believe someone may have witnessed a daylight burglary of an elderly person's home.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to the break-in at the property in Old Wells Road, Glastonbury.

The culprit/s stole items after getting into the home at the rear after the lock and chain on the front gate was cut.

The theft took place on Wednesday of last week (October 20) between 2.30pm and 4.30pm.

PC Jim Card said: “This burglary of an elderly person took place in the middle of the afternoon, so I am confident that someone may have seen something.

"It is likely that the offender(s) will have arrived and left in a vehicle, potentially being dropped off and then collected after the burglary had taken place.

“If you saw anyone acting suspiciously, or if you have any dash-cam footage which could help our investigation, then please come forward, quoting reference 5221246172.”
