Burglars force their way into pensioner’s home in Derritt Lane, Bransgore





Raiders burst into the home of a Bransgore pensioner, demanded cash and ransacked her house.

The “abhorrent” incident happened in the evening of Thursday 6th June when three offenders forced their way into the property on Derritt Lane through a conservatory door.

One of them shouted at the occupant, a woman in her 80s, demanding to know where her money was, while the other two turned over her home.

They escaped with a solid gold bracelet.

Having carried out investigations at the scene and in the surrounding area, police now want to hear from people who can help but have not already come forward.

This includes those who live locally and may have seen suspicious activity around the time of the raid.

Motorists who drove through the area may also have captured dash cam footage of the trio.

Officers also want to hear from those who may have seen something out of place which might be connected to the incident, such as any discarded property.

People are also urged to come forward if they saw a white, possibly saloon-type of vehicle in the area.

New Forest district commander Ch. Insp. Nick Marsden, said: “Residential burglary is always an intrusive and traumatic crime for any victim but for a vulnerable elderly victim to have to go through this is particularly distressing and abhorrent.
