The first burglary took place on Alexandra Avenue, in close proximity to Alexandra Close. Although the specific address has been withheld for data protection reasons, the incident occurred during the evening hours between 10:00pm and 10:30pm.

Similarly, another attempted burglary was reported on Kings Road, near the junction with Drake Road.

Eyewitnesses at two of the locations observed three unidentified males hastily fleeing the scene, heading toward a vehicle which has since been identified as bearing cloned number plates.
