Ellerton Road burglaries!

February 16, 2012 1 comment

There have been four burglaries in Ellerton Road – around Bond to Dennan this year.
And there is evidence of people having been in back gardens.

There are several things we can do to make our houses less likely to be burgled.

Leave a light on a time switch in the house to make your home look occupied in the late afternoon and evening.
Close curtains at night.
Don’t leave tools or ladders easy to get at in the back garden.
Lock garden sheds and back gates.

And most importantly keep your eyes and ears open for strangers, callers and cars not normally parked in your area. 

If you see anything ‘not quite right’ please do call the police. They would rather follow up a false alarm than miss catching an offender. 

More information can be founsd on our Facebook page:    “EBRRA community”

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.
