At about 3.45 am on Sunday 7th May the owner of a house in Donaldson Drive, Brockworth was asleep upstairs when two unknown male offenders smashed the rear kitchen window and reached in to grab a set of car keys. They were then seen to drive off in the owners purple Citroen DS3 registration number YS16VKR. The vehicle was briefly spotted by Police on the Painswick Road round about heading into Gloucester city centre at about 4am. One of the offenders cut his arm when smashing the window leaving blood at the scene of the crime.
Linked to this crime is a burglary at the Community Centre at Coopers Edge School in Typhoon Way. At about 3.30am neighbours to the school could hear banging coming from the community centre followed by an intruder alarm activation. Two males were then seen to run from the rear of the building and off towards Merlin Way. One was carrying an orange bag. Another neighbour saw a male trying to get into a car on a driveway who ducked into bushes when he realised he was been watched. He was described as wearing a blue running jacket with two reflective strips on the back. Entry had been gained to a vehicle and the community centre via smashing glass. Items were stolen from the vending machine in the centre.
Also back on Friday 28th April a house in Moorfield Road was entered during the day when the owner was out at work. Entry was gained by forcing through the rear patio doors and the offenders conducted an untidy search stealing gold jewellery and cash from an upstairs room.
There have been three shed or garage burglaries reported between the period 1st May and 3rd May although they were most likely all committed overnight on 2nd and 3rd May. Two of these offences occurred on Coopers Hill where two full fuels cans were stolen from a shed and two hedge trimmers were stolen from a shed which also had its lock forced. An insecure garage in Green Street was entered and a box of records, a hedge trimmer, petrol lawn mower, a Husqvarna chainsaw and a Flymo Strimmer were stolen.
