SO did you have a good Christmas? A safe and happy one I hope. Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New year.
I have no doubt that you will have followed good crime prevention advice and not left gifts on display, so don’t spoil the rest of your Christmas break by advertising what Santa has brought you by stacking all those empty boxes outside your door or near your wheelie bin.
It maybe sometime before your rubbish is collected and burglars will be on the look out for rich pickings.
Now, please take a look at this week’s list of crimes and see if you can help.
