3:04pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
A SAMURAI sword and electrical items were stolen in a burglary of an New Milton flat.
Police are appealing for information following the incident, which took place between noon on Saturday, September 21, and noon on Monday, September 24.
Police said someone broke a bedroom window of a ground floor flat, searched the premises and left with £2,500 worth of the owner’s possessions.
Included in the missing items is a 42-inch Paul Chen Samurai sword with a ray-skin handle. Also taken were a 40-inch Samsung flat screen television and a 22-inch LG flat screen television and their remote controls.
A Blackberry Tablet, Sony HD camcorder, a Kodak pocket camera, Samsung digital camera, Phillips headphones and a memory card with martial arts training footage also are missing.
PC Graham Wilkins said: “I need to hear from anyone who saw or heard unusual activity or unfamiliar people in that area during the 48 hours in question.
"There would have been the noise of breaking glass, and the intruder probably used a vehicle.
“I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle in the area of Ashley Cross Road or Ashtree Close and anyone who has been offered any of the items since the burglary.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Wilkins at New Milton on 101.
