Break-ins in Weißkirchen, Oberstedten and Eichwäldchen

The Christmas holidays had hardly started when three break-ins where reported in Oberursel on Tuesday, 22nd December, 2015.

One house in the Mauerfeldstraße in Weißkirchen was broken into by lifting the shutters on the door to the patio and then forcing the door open.  Jewellery worth €1,400 was stolen.

In the Hauptstraße in Oberstedten burglars tried to gain access to a house by smashing a double-glazed pation door, but failed due to an additional lock installed on its tracks.  Since they could not open that door, they tried to lift a second patio door but did not manage this either.  Eventually they apparently managed to force a gap open using a gardening implement, but as this appears not to have been big enough they fled.  Even though they did not gain access to the property, they caused considerable damage worth around €2,000.

Finally, between 6pm and 9.30pm burglars entered a house in the Feinbergweg.  Here they managed to lift the patio door and and gain access but having search through all the rooms in the property they left empty handed.  The damage here is estimated to be around €300.
