A WOMAN has told of how she chased two burglars in Frith End as they were running from her home.
Lee Turk was returning home with her partner Tim after visiting their horses when she spotted two men running across the garden.
“As Tim pulled up outside our house, we saw a black, very nice Audi, kind of hovering – which rung alarm bells,” Lee told the Herald.
“As I looked through the trees to my garden, I could see them running away – the black Audi had beeped to warn them,” she said.
“I just saw red – I leapt out the car and ran down the road and chased them, and I kept chasing them.”
Lee told of how she shouted to a DPD driver in a bid to stop the thieves. However, the Audi – now serving as a get-away vehicle – slowed down and drove the men off “towards Bentley way”.
The couple – who are owners to 19 rescue dogs – returned home to find the downstairs completely untouched, but found their bedroom completely ransacked.
The burglars entered the home using a screwdriver, prying open a sliding door.
Items stolen included Lee’s nan’s bracelet, a half sovereign on a chain she received for her 21st birthday, and items belonging to Tim’s granddad.
Lee said: “To just know they’ve been in there and what they’ve done made me ill.
“I had to go to the GP because I couldn’t calm down inside.”
She also told how one of their pets sustained an injury to its eye after the burglary, which Lee believes may have been caused by one of the burglars kicking the dog.
A Hampshire Police spokesperson said: “We were called at 3.28pm on Wednesday, July 22 to reports of a burglary at an address on Frith End Road, Bordon, that took place between 1pm and 3.10pm.
“The residents had returned home and saw two men leaving the rear of their address. The two suspects are believed to have left in a dark-coloured Audi, possibly an RS4.
“Entry had been forced to the address and jewellery and watches were stolen.
“Anyone with information is asked to phone 101 with the reference 44200273863.”
