Police have recorded four burglaries in Heide, Waasmunster, all likely to have taken place on Monday night and overnight. In a burglary in Pelkemstraat, thieves were arrested at about 2am. This happens when the alarm goes off and the perpetrator has to flee. The residents themselves were not at home.

Burglaries at three other addresses
Presumably, the same author has managed to reach three other addresses. Some small jewels were stolen from a house in Ommegangsdreef. The owners recently purchased the house and have yet to move into their new home. The house hasn't been decorated yet. At the back of the house, police determined the office window was damaged and open. Whoever did this forced the window open, probably with a sturdy screwdriver.
Residents of De Morgenster found their house broken into on Tuesday afternoon. The thief bent the wire fence in the garden and broke the kitchen window. All the Windows downstairs are open. Presumably, if caught, they could flee immediately. The thieves eventually found a spare key to the Fiat 500 in the garage and took the car with them. They can open garage doors and automatic doors simply by using a remote control in the car. They also stole jewelry.
Finally, there was also a burglary at a house in Lentelaan that was previously used as a second home. Here, too, the author entered through a window on the first floor. All the lockers were searched, but nothing was stolen from here.
