NO CRIME TO REPORT IN THE LAST 48 HOURS !!  WELL DONE EVERYONE.
 
Can I remind everyone about our Summer Burglary Campaign, which deals with doors and windows left open for ventilation, in the hot weather.
 
Windows can only be left open - if you are in that room.
 
At this time of year, we get ‘walk in thefts’.  Opportunist thieves are out and about, looking for anyone, who has made a mistake and compromised their security.  If they hear you working in your garden - a hedge trimmer or mower - they may walk down any side access and try a back / side door.  Most people don’t lock these, if working in the garden, as they are going in and out.  The opportunist will simply try the door.  If it is open, they will enter and scout around quickly looking for handbags, left on kitchen counter tops.
 
If you return and disturb them, they will have a story already prepared.  You will be totally surprised, off guard and probably say - ‘What are you doing in my house’ ?  They will respond -‘I am looking for John / Harry / Peter - whatever, he said to meet him here, doesn’t he live here’ ?  You will be really confused and say- ‘NO’ ?  They will then say, before you gather yourself together - ‘Sorry, wrong house’ - and they are gone.
 
You will stand there for a few minutes, totally confused - did that really happen ?  Later, you will find a purse missing from a handbag.
 
If you are working in your garden - tedious as it is - you must lock any rear side access doors, as you go in and out.
 
No windows can be left open on upper floors, if they are next to a porch, or perhaps a flat garage roof, which can be used to climb up.  Wheelie bins, must be put out of sight, as they are often used, to climb onto flat roofs.
 
Small bathroom transom windows, must also be closed.  Opportunists can reach in and open larger windows!
