DETECTIVES are appealing for information and witnesses after a daytime house burglary in Dunmow yesterday (August 4).

Sometime between 4.15pm and 4.40pm thieves gained entry to a property in Harris Green and stole around £180 in cash from inside the property.

Detectives are appealing for anyone with information about this crime to contact CID at Braintree on 0300 3334444, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

DCI Mark Wheeler said: "There are also a few simple steps that people can take to make themselves safer. It's good to ensure that you keep your keys somewhere safe and out of sight. Also, do not leave cash, bags and wallets lying around. Please keep all accessible doors and windows closed and locked. If you have UPVC doors, please ensure that you lock the door with the key - just pulling up the handle does not deadlock the door. If you have a garage, please try to lock your vehicle away safely inside it.
