KENILWORTH HOUSEHOLDERS are being warned to keep a sharp lookout and report anything, or anyone they see as suspicious as crime has reappeared across the town in the New Year. Three properties have been targeted over the last few days. One was broken into, car keys taken and a vehicle stolen. Two other properties were the subject of Attempted Burglaries.
Crown Watch are advising residents to keep a keen lookout for persons acting suspiciously, loitering around properties, climbing over fences, or trying side gates, etc. The Watch are saying ‘if it doesn’t look right then it probably isn’t’ and if that is the case they are appealing directly to householders to not ‘parcel it away’ in their head but to get on the telephone and report what they are seeing.
The details of the latest burglaries are:

During the night of 6 into 7 January, offenders drilled the lock out of the side door of a home in Butler Close, Kenilworth and entered the kitchen. The offenders then stole the keys to two vehicles parked in the driveway and used one set to take an Audi vehicle.
