Spate of burglaries in Mosgiel

Mosgiel Police are asking residents to keep their eyes open after a spate of burglaries in the township.

Since March 7, 13 burglaries have occurred in and around Mosgiel, and several vehicles have been broken into and damaged.

The main targets have been houses in the Gladstone Road area and cars and houses in the Lanark St area.

Food, alcohol and electrical items have been taken.

A house in King St was entered last night by two men. An elderly man at the address was shaken by the incident but unhurt and the pair made off as soon as they were disturbed.

"We're very keen to hear from any members of the public or residents in the southern side of Mosgiel who might have seen something suspicious or have information that might assist us," Senior Sergeant Alastair Dickie said.

"If you see or hear something suspicious please call 111 immediately. We also ask that you ensure your property and vehicles are secure."

Police are following several lines of inquiry.

People with information can call 111 if they are witnessing suspicious activity in their area, or provide information to Dunedin Police on 03 471-4800.

Information can also be provided anonymously via the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
