Detectives investigating an attempted burglary in Budleigh Salterton are warning residents to be vigilant and keep doors locked.
Officers were called to Queens Road at the weekend after a first floor flat was targeted when a burglar smashed a glass door in an attempt to gain access.
Detective Constable Michael Chalmers warned an ‘open door was an open invitation’, adding: “People must be vigilant and they must keep an eye on each other and their property.”
To prevent crime, the detective urged people to lock doors and to contact the police if they spotted anyone acting suspiciously.
