Spate of burglaries.

December 17, 2011 Leave a comment

There has recently been a sharp increase in burglary and theft along the A 3 corridor which appears to be ‘organised.’
Residents should be vigilent regarding locking doors and windows and not leaving keys visible – nor having ladders in the garden or sheds open where tools could be stolen or used to gain entry.
Objects including metal are also being stolen from front gardens.

A ruse to check ‘nobody at home’ is for a female to call at a house and ask if “so and so” lives here.
If this happens the police want you to call and inform them immediately.
They would rather have 100 calls that lead nowhere than missing that one call which leads to the gang being caught. 

Christmas is a busy time when we may drop our guard and with evening/nights dark, curtains may be left open to show our trees, thus allowing views into our rooms.
If you are away over the holiday, leave a light on a timer and get neighbours to close your curtains at night.

Keep your eyes open for anything – anyone – strange in your road.
Lets look after one another – be safe – be aware.
