Man finds burglars in his elderly mum's Canvey home

Echo: Man finds burglars in his elderly mum's home Man finds burglars in his elderly mum's home

POLICE are hunting two men who were spooked during a burglary.

A man discovered the two burglars in his elderly mother’s home in Central Wall Road, Canvey, on Monday.

The break in happened at 3.55pm.

Investigating Officer Pc Samantha Winter said: "The lady and her son were out to lunch and when they got home, the son heard glass smashing. He came face to face with the burglars who were in his mother’s conservatory. They made off along Central Wall Road, in the direction of Somnes Avenue, until they were out of sight.”

She added: "We carried out a search of the area with officers on the ground as well as the helicopter but they were not found.”

They damaged a patio door to make their way into the house through the conservatory, and smashed an internal glass door. After being disturbed, the raiders didn’t manage to steal anything from the house.

The victim’s son described the suspects as white men. The first was aged between 16 and 20, of slim build, around 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall with short hair. He was wearing jeans and a yellow short-sleeved top and was carrying a black scrunched up fabric bag with a handle.

The second was aged between 24 and 25, was between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall, with short hair and was wearing dark coloured clothing.

Anyone with any information or anyone who may have seen the two men acting suspiciously before or after the break in is asked to contact Southend CID on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Well first of all, well done for the burglars getting away. I don't like to see police with the upper hand. But then again, why do you want to burgle an elderly persons home? The best places to steal from is shops. You can actually steal more from shops and make more money and is less of a serious crime which the police and too fussed about. But then burglary is a whole new level.

If your brains exploded it wouldn't even disturb your hair.

I bet you'd assist then if your grandmother got burgled, you'd be helping the little scr0tes wouldn't you? You'd be helping them help yourselves to your grandmother's belongings and frightening the living daylights out of her into the bargain.

People like you need a **** good hiding and one day, I hope you come up against somebody who is built like a brick sh*thouse and I hope he makes mincemeat of you.

This is nothing to do with the police getting the upper hand, it's all about protecting citizens - especially vulnerable ones - from scum like you.

And shoplifting is still serious you @sshole. Every time vermin like you takes something from a shop, decent ordinary people have to pay through increased prices.

Honestly, when brains were handed out, you weren't even in the queue let alone at the back of it.

I hope you get your come uppance soon. I believe in Karma - and believe me, yours is definitely due.

Mother and Son were lucky on two accounts.
Firstly coming home at the time they did.
Secondly the burglars did a runner and not stayed to threaten.
Pity that if they get caught things can't be taken from them like there Human Rights as they don't deserve them.

Of course shoplifting is not as bad. It's a proven fact. It's at the bottom of the criminal chain. Built like a brick sh!thouse? I'm a pretty big lad myself. Not the biggest, but I have alot of bottle and would not think twice about kicking someone in the head. And the type of people who I know will make people twice about even considering ****!ing with me. There's no such thing as a karma. Mine is not due, and never will be. People who live a care free live are the ones that get away with everything. You only live once and I couldn't give a sh!t. Now jog on, and make some more complaints to Nick Alston.
