***Neighbourhood watch Alert***
Dear Co-ordinators: Please pass this Alert on to your residents:
Last night, Tuesday the 06/12/2011 there where 7 burglaries in the areas of Abbey Way, Monks Close, Elles Close and Old Rectory Gardens; both from the house and sheds, this also includes a theft of a vehicle from one residents address.
Access was gained to some homes through the letter box by using a device to open the door as the door was not locked correctly. The suspects gained access to all other sheds and houses by insecure windows and unlocked doors.
None of the properties and sheds involved where locked properly.
This alert is to remind residents to lock all windows and doors, take any keys away from doors, preferably upstairs and consider leaving lights on or using timer switches when you are out.
In the run up to Christmas there is also some security information to residents:
Please resist from leaving presents under the tree until Christmas morning.
Do not leave any empty boxes from expensive presents in your rubbish - this could attract unwanted attention.
Please be aware of your security at home,
If you would like any information on security please contact a member of your beat team:
Beth, Richard and James
