Information on burglaries sought

Inquiries into burglaries around the Mosgiel area have revealed a ''significant'' amount of unreported activity, police say.

Last week, police asked Mosgiel residents to contact them regarding suspicious activity in the township.

Thirteen burglaries had been recorded since March 7.

Sergeant Kevin Davidson, of Mosgiel, said: ''It appears there has been a significant amount of activity that has not been reported to police.

''We would be very interested in any information that people have got about vehicles or people, particularly around the southeastern area [of Mosgiel].''

The main targets in the burglaries were houses in the Gladstone Rd area, and houses and vehicles in the Lanark St area.

Food, alcohol and electrical items were all targeted in the burglaries.

Sgt Davidson said the majority of burglaries appeared to be linked and police were following several lines of inquiry.

An elderly man who found two males inside his King St property last week was receiving assistance from Victim Support.

Anyone with information about suspicious activity was urged to contact Dunedin police on 471-4800, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555-111.
