Cumbria police probe spate of burglaries

A spate of burglaries - and an attempted arson attack - over three days in Workington are being investigated by police.

Properties on various streets have been raided and items including money, electrical goods and credit cards stolen.

Police are trying to establish if the incidents are linked.

They have appealed for information about the break-ins, which took place between January 9 and 11.

They say:

  • a number of properties were targeted on Queen Street
  • an insecure property on Honister Drive was entered and there was an attempted burglary on the same street
  • at Harrington Road, a brick was thrown through a window and there was also an arson attempt
  • a brick was thrown at a house on Senhouse Street during a bid to break in
  • there was a sneak-in burglary on Princess Street
  • there was an attempted raid on Corporation Road

Anyone who saw anything suspicious between those dates, is asked to call police on 101. Anyone who has not reported either a burglary or an attempt should also call the force.
