Police are appealing for information after a Rotherhithe-based charity for ex-military personnel was burgled earlier this week.

Homes 4 Heroes UK, located above the Surdoc Club in Cope Street, was targeted during the early hours of November 18 at around 4.45am.

Police told the News that a “white Toshiba laptop Satellite C55 DA14” was stolen during the burglary, containing templates used to make identity passes for the charity’s representatives.

The charity has now changed the passes for its staff and volunteers, but advises if anyone has any concerns about someone claiming to be from the charity they should contact Homes 4 Heroes on 020 7237 6363.

If anyone has any information regarding either the burglary, or the whereabouts of the laptop, they should call Southwark Police’s CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference 3033697/15.

A man was arrested in connection with the burglary on November 19. He has been charged with burglary and will appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court today.
