Burglars broke in to two new homes in Carterton and Witney and stole a fitted kitchen and two cookers.

Between 4.30pm on Friday, June 6, and 6am on Monday, June 9, burglars forced their way into a property in Ashcombe Crescent, Witney and stole the fitted kitchen.

Details were only released today.

At the same time, a property in Swinbrook Road, Carterton, was also targeted and two cookers stolen.

Det Sgt Craig Kirby said: "This burgling of new-build properties is a new problem in our district.

"We will be working with building firms and contractors to make sure their sites are left secure over weekends.

"These thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the stolen property, so if anyone saw a suspicious vehicle in the area, please get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to call Det Sgt Kirby on 08458 505505 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
