We continue to see thefts from vehicles, particularly in the Fletton ,Woodston and Stanground areas. Please make sure that nothing of value is left in your vehicles overnight and always check they are locked and secured when unattended. In the recent offences money, a bag, a Nintendo DS and CDs have been stolen. Offenders will be active on the run up to Xmas so please do take precautions to stop this happening to you.
We've also had two daytime burglaries reported during the past week.
Abbotsbury, Orton Malborne: Thursday midday. A resident disturbed a male who had entered the property through an unlocked door. The male ran from the property. Offender was described as a teenager wearing a light blue jacket.
Woodhurst Rd, Stanground: Thursday afternoon. The resident was at home, heard a smashing noise, discovered a rear window smashed and found a male in her home. The Offender ran from the address with jewellery belonging to the resident.
He is described as a white male with short mousey brown hair aged 16-20yrs
and approx 5ft 6 wearing blue tracksuit bottoms and a brown jacket.
Surrounding Police forces are seeing an increase in thefts of gold from burglaries in their areas and we are urging all residents in Peterborough, who might have a quantity of gold to ensure the items are stored securely and not simply left in drawers and cupboards.
Please also remember to take photographs of any valuable items, store these separately in a safe place. Anyone can register their belongings for free on www.immobilise.com (A national property register used by many police forces).
Benefits of registration:
- Immobilise helps Police identify the owners of recovered property thousands of times each day.
- Property updates you make are immediately available to the Police nationally.
- Combat the sale of stolen gadgets & valuables; alert the second-hand trade & publicly checkable stolen goods database CheckMend if an item goes missing.
- Simplify insurance claims and Police reports with certificates of ownership.
Anyone wanting home security advice can contact me by email or telephone (details below) and I will be happy to make recommendations.
