End of the Summer Lullby Brian HSS on 09/25/16
Sadly, as Summer comes to an end and the evenings draw in the opportunities for the burglar increase. Two burglaries this week with the material loss of a substantial amount of cash and a large TV. Access to both victims properties was via an open window and an unlocked door during the early hours of the morning. Both at the rear of the buildings. Although the door and window should have been locked both burglaries could have been avoided with simple and cost effective improvements to the access route to the garden area. Gardens are favourite and the vast majority of breakins happen at the rear of properties becuase of the seclusion. A simple latticework fence across the top of the gate would have made it difficult to climb over, cost about £5 from a local garden store.
