A laptop was stolen from a home in Chatteris – and thieves may have taken advantage of the occupant weeding her front garden.

On Tuesday, May 26, the victim was at her home in Green Park for the majority of the day, weeding the front garden.

Throughout the day she went back into the house to check her e-mails on her black Toshiba Satellite laptop, which had been left on the dining room table.

A police spokesman said: “After leaving the home at about 7.20pm and returning at about 9.15pm, the victim noticed her laptop had been moved from where it had been left and began to search the house.

“Not finding it, she has then believed it had been stolen from inside the house at some point between her last using it at about 2.40pm and her noticing it missing at about 9.15pm.”

Det Con Shelly Reeve said: “While the victim was at home throughout the day, along with her daughter and pet dog, all external doors were unlocked but remained closed.

“This has been particularly unsettling for the family as there is every possibility that someone has entered their home, while they were there, removed the laptop and left without then noticing.”
