Burglaries rise in July

In July there were 10 burglaries reported to the police in Glenfield, an increase from June when only 3 were reported. This is a significant increase caused by a group of individuals who have targeted the village and also nearby areas. We would like to remind the public to be vigilant to suspicious behaviour and report any to the police directly at the time. The group has also taken car keys from the burglaries and then stolen the car and driven – the lesson is keep your car keys out of site at all times.

There were 11 vehicle related crimes reported to the police, down from 14 in June, but still a significant number, and theft from works vans remains a prevalent issue across the beat. One person had their car stolen when a man came to view it with the so called intention of buying the car only to drive off whilst the engine was running and the resident's back was turned. The vehicle was later found in New Parks containing drugs.

Many of these incidents have been reported on our Facebook page – just search for Glenwatch – together with updates on missing cats, the car incidents at the Nags Head and outside Glenfield Travel on Station Road, burglary on Faire Road, scams and false "while you were out" cards etc. Join the group and see what's going on.

The next Glenwatch meetings are on Tuesday 3rd October and then Tuesday 5th December, 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.
