Floods victims may have been targeted by criminals

Police are investigating reports of burglaries at two properties in Huntington Road, York.

Flooded York. Levels now officially higher than 2012

On 28 December at around 10.45am, a member of the public reported that their neighbour’s house had been broken into overnight by forcing the back door.

On the afternoon of 28 December, a resident then reported that his shed had been burgled overnight and a number of tools had been taken. 

Both incidents are being fully investigated by North Yorkshire Police.

Acting Superintendent Mark Grange said:

“It is extremely disappointing to see victims of the floods being targeted in this way.

“It is impossible to comprehend why anyone would want to bring further suffering to those who are already in a very vulnerable situation.

“Burglary will not be tolerated and those who commit this type of crime will face the full force of the law.

“I want to take this opportunity to remind residents to be vigilant and ensure property is as secure as it possibly can be.”

If anyone witnessed either of the incidents or has any information which could assist the investigation, please call police on 101.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
