Burglaries in Coniston Avenue: information needed re wanted men

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information regarding the whereabouts of two men who are wanted in connection with burglaries in Oxford.

Lewis Felton, aged 27, and Kane Jones, aged 21, are wanted in connection with a number of burglaries that happened in Oxford on the same day last year.

The first burglary happened in Coniston Avenue, Marston, at about 2.10am on Tuesday 14 November.

During the burglary five offenders, all wearing hooded tops with the hoods up, forced their way into the property and stole a set of car keys to a Mazda 3 VRM SL54 KVZ.

Two of the offenders then drove the Mazda, which has tinted windows and gold alloy wheels, towards Headley Way.

The other three offenders walked away from the scene towards Ambleside Drive.

A purple coloured Adidas rucksack was also stolen. The rucksack contained a BMW employee pass and a 50ml bottle of DKNY gold perfume.

The second burglary happened in Valentia Road at about 2.30am.

During the burglary the offenders forced open a door to the property and stole a set of keys to a Land Rover with a 2014 number plate.

Subsequently, the Land Rover was stolen.

The third burglary occurred in Hill Top Road at about 2.45am.

The offenders forced their way into the property through a window and stole a set of keys to a BMW X5. The vehicle was later recovered in Prospect Path.

A set of house keys, watch and a Samsung phone were also taken.

Investigating officer, PC Sian Lewis of the Local Policing Area team in Oxfordshire, said: “I would appeal to anyone who has any information about the burglaries or the whereabouts of Lewis Felton and Kane Jones to contact police immediately.

“Felton has links to Berinsfield, Kidlington and Oxford and Jones has links to Kidlington and Oxford.

“It is believed that the offenders may have used a silver Vauxhall, possibly an Astra or Corsa, during the burglaries.

“If anyone has any information please call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 and quote reference 43170338429.

“If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

“I would like to reassure residents that the force takes burglary extremely seriously. We realise the impact that such an intrusive crime has on its victims.

“This type of burglary is generally committed with the sole intention of recovering car keys so that the victim’s vehicles can then be stolen. As such the force advises motorists to place their car keys out of sight.”
