Car stolen after house burglary at Cross Hills
8:00am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
A burglar stole a wallet, two games consoles and a laptop from a home before driving off in the victim’s car.
The burglary happened on Wheatlands Lane, Cross Hills, at about 2.30am on Friday.
The owners of the red Suzuki Jimny 4x4 heard the vehicle being driven away.
The Suzuki was recovered in nearby Burnroyd Avenue at about 3.30am.
One person, believed to be from Bradford, has since been arrested by officers working on Operation Hawk, a county-wide crackdown on rural crime and travelling criminals.
Chief Inspector Simon Lovell, the Craven Safer Neighbourhood commander, said: “We are doing everything we can to support the victims while the investigation continues. They are naturally very upset and shaken by the ordeal.
“I urge anyone with information that could assist police enquires to come forward without delay. Even the smallest piece of information could be very important.”
Anyone with information should phone North Yorkshire Police on 101 and ask for David Foyston, or email email@example.com.
