Occupants of a house were woken by loud bangs at the front door in what is believed to have been an attempted burglary.
The incident was reported in Eatongate Close, Edlesborough, on Tuesday (May 29).
Between 2am and 2.15am the residents heard the noise, turned on the lights and had a look out but couldn’t see anything.
Several days later they discovered that there was damage to the front door, where someone had tried to force it open.
Detective Constable Gemma Howe, said: “I believe this may have been an attempt to steal car keys from the residence and then take the car from outside.
“If you have CCTV in the area please review it, to see if it shows up anything suspicious in the early hours of Tuesday morning.”
If you have any information call DC Howe on the 24 hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 43180166332.
