Burglary Seized Vehicles Event and SCAMS

Residential Burglary on Aldridge Road. The report has only just come in but this appears to have happened whilst the residents were not in and entrance via the back of the property. Unknown what/if anything has been taken but please remember that residential Burglaries tend to happen when properties looks un-occupied, money and jewellery are usually targeted and entrance is usually gained via the back of the property.  

Crime figures are good for Burbage again this week but please continue to be careful around opportunistic criminals. These types of crimes include theft from sheds, theft of bicycles and theft from vehicles. Also double check nothing is left on show and ensure your property is locked.

Several stop checks and vehicles removed under DVLA powers in locations such as Watling Street and Brookfield Road.

We attended the “Welcome back Burbage” event today and spoke to lots of residents. It was really great to see so many people and get some brilliant feedback especially around Neighbourhood Link. It is nice to know the messages make a difference. Thank you.
