A home and garage have been burgled in Congresbury.

A garage was broken into in Silverstone Way on March 16 between midnight and 6am, while a home was burgled in nearby Silver Street, on the same night between 2-2.30am.

A witness saw two males lurking in a garden in Yew Tree Park and challenged them, telling them to get out.

Police later located a handbag in the driveway of another property in Silver Street and a burglary was confirmed upon checking the home’s contents.

The side kitchen window had been broken to gain access and officers conducted a search of the property and found drawers had been emptied.

At the garage burglary, the offenders used a wrench to force a padlock from the garage door to gain entry.
