Burglary alert (Leicestershire Police)

Good afternoon Earl Shilton and Barwell. Since our last message we would like to make you aware that there has been an increase in burglaries around the beat. People have been arrested in relation to some of these burglaries. We would like to remind people to make their property secure throughout the day and night. Here’s what we recommend you do before you go out:-close and lock all your doors and windows, even if you’re only going out for a few minutes-double-lock any door-make sure that any valuables are out of sight-keep handbags away from the letterbox or cat flap and hide all keys including car keys, as a thief could hook keys or valuables through even a small openingThese have been the main issues across the beat over the past week and a half. We have had no ASB priority calls and a suspect was arrested who was found with possession of drugs. Please stay vigilant and keep your possessions safe.Kind regards.Earl Shilton and Barwell beat team.
