A reminder to check home security and be vigilant following a report of a break-in earlier this week in the area. The police say that break-ins are typically for food and money but this one was on a bigger scale, suggesting that professional burglars could be operating in the area. The burglary took place in the evening, and the burglars gained access through the front windows – so check that good window locks are in place. Break-ins are often to get car keys so police advice is to park a car that might attract the interest of burglars away from your house, and not to leave keys on display.
