Increase in Glenfield burglaries

There were 13 burglaries reported in Glenfield in May – this is an increase in burglaries across the beat from last month, we would like to remind the public to be vigilant to suspicious behaviour. In particular, car keys have been targeted with addresses being searched. Please ensure that your car keys are well hidden when you go to bed and also when you go out and don't take your vehicle with you. There have also been a number of addresses that have had their front doors forced so be sure to secure all doors and windows when not in use. Many of these have been committed during the day. We want to emphasize that you need to be security conscious at all times, not just overnight. Whilst it is still unlikely that you will become a victim of a burglary it is important that you take appropriate precautions to reduce the possibility.
There were also 8 vehicle related crimes reported in the village. One of our Glenwatch coordinators has been providing the police with excellent information for a number of months of an incident in progress which allowed the police to arrest an individual for theft from motor vehicles. They had been trying car doors and taking property from those they found open. Please remember to lock your vehicles.
In relation to a report of arson on Ellis Park which has been investigated by the beat team, an individual has been charged and found guilty at court. The new play and gym equipment provided by the parish Council is expensive so the police are very pleased to have been able to secure this conviction.
In other good news, a suspect has been arrested and charged following the theft of charity boxes from Troodos Fish and Chip shop on Dominion Road. The CCTV footage of this break in was posted on the Glenwatch facebook page.
The next Glenwatch meeting is on Tuesday 1st August 2017 starting at 7.15pm at the Parish Council offices, Park House, Stamford Street – everyone welcome. Come along and hear the latest police information and have your say. You can contact Glenwatch by email at contact@glenwatch.org.uk or on 0116 2875141 or via the Glenwatch website.
