Ignored Advice Attracts More Burglaries

A plea from Kenilworth Neighbourhood Watch for residents to take more interest in their community and heed the regular advice of Police and Neighbourhood Watch has been made as news has come in of two further burglaries in Kenilworth over the weekend of 26/27 January 2013.

In one of the events garden tools left outside were used by the offenders to gain entry to the property, whilst in the other event entry was even simpler through a door left open and thus insecure. The monthly neighbourhood watch “Kenilworth Update” for the town, said “It’s really disheartening and frustrating that both Neighbourhood Watch and the Police repeatedly try to warn residents of the things that they should avoid doing that can help thieves and yet it seems we are not being heard.”

“Our Safer Neighbourhood Team can only do so much and they are very proactive but each individual has to take responsibility themselves and play their part too”

“Ideally we want everyone in Kenilworth to sign up to receiving our monthly crime update, which they can receive free through email or access at our Crown Watch website. Only by getting everyone taking the messages and playing a part do we stand a chance of making Kenilworth somewhere it is hard to commit crime” they added.

Two homes in the town were targeted over the weekend in Amherst Road and Woodmill Meadows, anyone that saw anything or who may have any information about these latest crimes are asked to contact Warwickshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 111 555
