The incident took place at around 4.30pm, and local residents report that a number of police response cars attended, alongside a dog handler.
A police officer at the scene told Swindon 24 reporters that the incident was a “house burglary” and it is believed that the occupants were in the house at the time of the burglary.
A police spokesperson said: “We can confirm we attended a report of a break-in at a property on Kingshill around 4.30pm on Friday 20 November, however when officers arrived there was no-one in the property.
