  1. Don’t like the sound of this burglary in such a public area! There seem to have been a lot of thefts/robberies lately. Hope all is well with you. Bye for now, Anita.

    1. Understand your concern but please note that robberies are rare occurrences and are different to burglaries. Robberies involve a person being attacked in pursuit of an act of theft or being put in fear of their life or well being. Burglaries are of course distressing And a violation of a persons home or property but do not involve threat of violence.
