Exmouth police warn of ‘opportunistic’ burglars

Exmouth police are warning people to lock their homes of face being burgled.

The message comes after two walk-in burglaries were committed in the early hours of Monday morning.

Two homes in the Colony were targeted and property stolen when the culprit gained entry to the properties through unlocked doors.

The police are keen to speak to a man wearing a white hooded top who was seen trying the handle of a kitchen door belonging to a home in Rosebery Road at around the time the burglaries were reported.

The police said one home in Halsdon Road was burgled twice, when the culprit stole a bicycle from a front porch before returning to take a scooter.
