Rugby Editorial 13th May, 2024   0

TWO TEENAGE boys have been arrested on suspicion of burglary in connection with incidents at houses in the Cawston area of Rugby.

Two boys from Birmingham, aged 15 and 16, were arrested on Thursday May 9.

The arrests follow three burglaries and two attempted burglaries at houses in Cawston in the early hours of April 20.

During two of the break ins – in Great Orme Close and Francis Drive – offenders fled after being disturbed by the occupants, having stolen two watches and cash from the house in Francis Drive.

Det Cons Chloe Smith from Rugby Serious Organised and Acquisitive Crime Team said: “These offences have understandably been extremely distressing for the victims, especially with those who came face to face with the burglars. They have also caused a great deal of concern in the local area.

“Having carried out a number of enquiries, including looking at CCTV, we have identified two suspects who have been interviewed and are now helping with our enquiries.

“We’re continuing to appeal for anyone with information that may help with out enquiries to get in touch.”

The suspects have been bailed while enquiries continue.

To report information, visit or call 101 quoting incident 45 of April 20. Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
