BURGLARS were caught on camera searching through a property while the victim was asleep.

At about 3.30am on Friday, February 14, two masked burglars smashed a key safe and used the front door key to enter the property in Sandhurst.

The pair are seen searching with torches and they managed to get away with £200 in cash and the victims bank cards.

Graeme Southwood was inside the property at the time the burglary was carried out and shared the CCTV videos of the incident on a public Facebook Page to warn other residents.

He said: "I felt angry first of course and then you realise it is quite unsettling. But I realise I’d created the risk by having a key safe. I’ll be more careful with keys in future and will enhance my property’s security.

"Lots of other people have been similarly burgled and the same people seem responsible for several incidents."

Mr Southwood explained how he will be upping security in his home, but wishes systems such as automatic number-plate recognition was used in Crowthorne to catch criminals better.

He added: "Anyone using a key box should check that it’s approved by their insurance company for a start. Mine, despite being the most popular isn’t approved. Online videos show how to crack it in 90 seconds.

"The benefits of ANPR are well known .... but even just cctv - there isn’t any in Crowthorne."

A Thames Valley Police spokesman, said: "The incident occurred at around 3.35am in Upper Broadmoor Road on the same day (14/2).

"No arrests have been made.

"Anyone with information is asked to contact Thames Valley Police by calling 101."
