A LAPTOP has been stolen in a burglary in Appledore.
A terraced home just off Pitt Hill was entered between 8.30am and 1pm on Tuesday November 6 and a Fujitsu laptop was taken from a table.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area, or who has been offered a similar laptop recently to contact Bideford CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference CD/12/2082.
A police spokesman said: "This may be an opportune time to remind householders to be aware of home security around the clock.
"This is a very rare occurrence but nevertheless people should be aware, and deter the opportunist thief by being careful."
