Despite several previous appeals by Warwickshire Police and Crown Watch it seems there are still people who either don’t think it will happen to them, ignore the warnings or simply just don’t think about such things. What are we talking about…? Leaving items on show in vehicles!
Over the past few days a spate of thefts have been experienced across Kenilworth.

She then went to a nearby cafe at which point she realised her purse had been stolen. She cannot recall if the handbag was unzipped when she noticed the purse missing.
We are sorry about the late posting of the events that took place in Crackley Lane, this is due to the failure of Warwickshire Police to notify Neighbourhood Watch of the crimes.
