Please remember to lock your UPVC doors and windows fully. It's after a spate of burglaries in Fareham, Locks Heath and Hill Head.

Eight reports have been received since the end of July where attempts have been made to enter detached homes by using tools to force UPVC doors and windows. If entry has been gained jewellery and cash has then been taken. At an address on Silver Birch Avenue, that was broken into, two men were seen acting suspiciously on Friday, September 4, at 9:30pm. If you saw these men we would like to hear from you. It is unclear whether these burglaries are all linked but officers are investigating this possibility. Officers have also prioritised the areas affected for patrols.

Police would like to speak to anyone who has been offered a number of distinctive items of jewellery for sale, including:
  • A silver four leaf clover broach with pearls on it was taken from a home on Short Road in Hill Head.
  • An 18 carat gold engagement ring with a sapphire and a diamond on each side was taken from a Crawford Drive home in Fareham.
  • A 22 carat plain gold wedding ring with an inscription on the inside featuring two names and the date 29.8.70 was taken from a Crescent Road home in Locks Heath.
The message from Hampshire Constabulary is to ensure that your front door and windows are locked and are as secure as possible when you leave home.

Other crime prevention tips include:
  • If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly.
  • Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of your property and ensure that your rear fencing is in good repair.
  • Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.
  • Don’t leave keys in doors; remove them and keep them close at hand, but out of sight, where you can easily find them in an emergency.
  • Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked and remember to double lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key).
  • If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.
  • Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault.​
  • Register your property for free at www.hampshire.police.uk/immobilise.
Anyone with any information about these burglaries is asked to contact DC Barry Martin at Fareham Police Station on 101 quoting 44150307623 or via the website www.hampshire.police.uk/internet/contact/message_officer.htm

You can also call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.

Sea viewHound is a village and civil parish in the borough of Eastleigh in southern Hampshire, England. The parish encompasses the villages of Netley Abbey, Butlocks Heath and Old Netley and includes such landmarks as Netley Castle and Netley Abbey Ancient Monument. In the 2001 census, the parish had a headcount of 6,846 living in 2,928 households.

The 1868 National Gazetteer described the parish as being in the Hundred of "Mainsbridge" and containing Sholing and Woolston as well as Netley. The land was mainly arable farmland at this point, with some pasture and woodland, including a substantial amount of common land. The parish is recorded from about 1370, when John de Bothby, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, held the living of Hound.
