Burglary at house in Cannock


We received a call just before 3am this morning (22 December) reporting a break-in at a house in Cannock.

Offenders entered a house in Victoria Street at approximately 2.40am this morning (Tuesday) by smashing a window and then reaching inside to open the locking mechanism, before climbing inside. The occupants of the house, who were asleep inside the property, were alerted to the intruders after hearing noises downstairs.

The offenders searched part of the property before the alarm was activated and they fled.

A black rucksack was stolen and used to store the following stolen items:

  • Apple ipad mini in pink case
  • Silver Apple ipad in black case
  • EE telephone and charger
  • Sony Experia mobile phone and charger
  • 24″ television
  • Set of house keys and alarm fob.
