I’m afraid that it is that time of the year again when we experience an increase in burglaries. The following have occurred recently:-
This was an attempted burglary , on the Westbury Road, where an implement (possibily crow bar) was used to try and gain access through a back door, whilst the residents were out between 0830-1600hrs on the 25th June. Damage was caused to the door/frame but fortunately no entry was gained.
Entry to a garage was gained, in Stormore between 20-22/06/2012. A petrol hedge trimmer and mountain bike were stolen from within.
At least four burglaries have occurred in the last 10 days. These were mainly non-dwelling (garages) where cycles and house keys from a vehicle were taken. The vehicle in this case was insecure.
Please pass this on to friends/neighbours, asking them to be vigilant and report sightings of all suspicious persons/vehicles in the area. Property to be secured and marked. Valuables should not be left in vehicles.
The NPT will be continuing with increased patrols in all areas.
