Police have been on patrol in a Cotswold village this week following a pair of burglaries.

On Monday and Wednesday last week, thieves broke into the home of an elderly person in Guiting Power, stealing car keys, a handbag, and jewellery.

It has not yet been established if the two incidents were connected.

As a result, Cotswold Neighbourhood Police Teams carried out reassurance patrols in the village on Tuesday, January 18.

Three men from Cheltenham have since been arrested in relation to the burglaries and investigations are ongoing.

Police are urging anyone with information to come forward, particularly if they have been offered the stolen jewellery or seen a silver SUV, estate, or similar vehicle acting suspiciously.

Alternatively, phone the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 11 to report it anonymously.
