A burglar who broke into a Newport Pagnell home triggered the alarm before fleeing.
The offender tampered with an electricity box at the side of a house in Wolverton Road, Newport Pagnell, between 2.15pm and 2.30pm last Tuesday (15/4).
The offender then gained access to the rear garden via a secure gate and fenced area, before using tools to gain entry to a utility room at the rear of the property.
The security alarm then sounded and the offender fled the scene.
There are no descriptions of the offender at this stage of the investigation.
