Episode 5

Domestic burglaries in Wiltshire have risen by over 20% in the past year. This episode explores what lies behind this troubling statistic, and looks at the Police's struggle to support victims and try to catch the people who are committing this hurtful crime. In Swindon one burglar is caught red handed, stealing frozen food from someone's freezer. Food bank use in Wiltshire has tripled over the last two years; is increasing poverty driving an escalation in burglary? At the other end of the spectrum, professional thieves seem to be targeting wealthy individuals in well-planned raids. Acting Sergeant Emily Grigor says 'I think it's just all about greed. About wanting everything. There's people that don't want to put the work in but they'll want what other people have.
