We’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of the following crime prevention advice:

Shut all windows and lock them when you are not using the room, at night and when you leave your property
Lock all front and rear doors at night and when you are out. If you have a UPVC door with a multi-point lock ensure you lift the handle and lock it with the key.
Put all car keys and other keys out of sight and not in reach of windows and letterboxes. It doesn’t take much for the keys to be hooked through the letterbox.
Leave a light on so your home looks occupied if you are going out for the evening. If you head out while it is still daylight and won’t be back till after dark then a timer switches (available from most DIY stores) can be useful in turning your lights, radios and other appliances on at a set time before you get back.
Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
Do not leave ladders and garden tools in your garden; lock them away in your shed.
Have an intruder alarm system installed by an approved contractor. Ensure a visible alarm box is attached to the outside of your home. Also consider fitting security lighting.
Use door chains and spy holes to give you extra security if someone knocks on your door. Never be afraid to turn people away. If you have concerns about anyone who has come to your door call the police.
Record the details of your property such as serial numbers for electronic goods on the Immobilise website (https://www.immobilise.com/)
If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference ‘44180064396’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
