The force being used by criminals in Kenilworth has continued with two crimes being reported over the weekend in Kenilworth. At one address burglars wrenched a burglar alarm off the wall and despite the alarm continuing to sound entered the property ransacking rooms and taking several items of property.
The other crime involved power tools being stolen from a van. Both these events have heightened concern about burglaries in and around the town. While many residents have taken several steps to deter criminals there is mounting anxiety that a lack of police presence and an associated low likelihhood of being caught is leading to a more brazen attitude amongst offenders.
