Attempted break-in at Gorleston home

PUBLISHED: 12:43 29 June 2012 | UPDATED: 12:43 29 June 2012

Police are appealing for information after someone attempted to break into a home in Gorleston.

It happened at an address in mariners Compass between 9.30am and 2.30pm on Friday, June 15.

No entry was gained but a window and patio door were damaged in the process.

A bang was heard between 1pm and 1.30pm which caused a neighbour’s dogs to start barking and it is thought this may have scared the intruder or intruders off.

Police investigating the incident are asking anyone who may have been in the area between these times to think back to see if you remember seeing anything suspicious.

If you have any information about the incident or who tried to break in please call DC Gillian Dawson at Great Yarmouth CID on 101.
