The property on the outskirts of the village was targeted on Saturday night while the occupants were away.

Investigations so far reveal the house in Bundy Grove was broken into between 11pm and midnight on the 11th July.

Police say the offenders caused significant damage to the back door and then carried out a messy search inside the address. 

They made off with a number of watches.

Officers think the offenders left in the direction of Ringwood on the A338. 


Police want to hear from anyone that can help with their investigation.

In a statement the force said.

"We would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the Bundy Grove area between 11pm and midnight on Saturday, as well as anybody who may have CCTV at nearby addresses.

We would also be interested in hearing from anybody who was driving a vehicle with a dash cam on the A338 between Downton and Ringwood during this time." 

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54200068026.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
