|Opportunist burglar gaining entry via an |
I've just been informed by our Safer Neighbourhood Police, that between the 19th and 20th August, there were two burglaries in the Crooms Hill area that occurred overnight. Access for both of these burglaries was gained through open windows; presumably left open due to the hot weather.
If you are going to sleep with windows left open, make sure they cannot be accessed via a wall, rainwater pipe, flat or pitched roof. Better still, fit window locks which allow you to open them a little for ventilation but not wide enough for a person to climb through.
But please remember to close and LOCK all windows and doors before you leave your property.
