TWO men used a stolen ladder to try to break-in into a home on Saturday night.

Between 7pm and 8.15pm, the men were seen using the ladder to look in to a first-floor bedroom at a house in Dundridge Lane, Chilton Candover.

The men were disturbed before they could force their way into the property.

Police are appealing for people who were in the area at the time and saw any vehicle or suspicious people to call 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, and quote the crime reference 44190113499.

In a Hampshire Alert, PC Andrew Reid added: "I wish to remind all residents not to leave items such as ladders or garden tools such as shovels, spades etc. out insecure in their gardens as burglars will use your items to break into your home."
