Another burglary in North Somercotes

Alert message sent 09/06/2019 17:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Sadly another burglary has been reported to us this afternoon, this time on Cemetery Rd, North Somercotes.  The offence has occurred when the occupants have been away from the address and has taken place sometime between 1pm on Friday 7th June and 3.50pm this afternoon.

Entry has again been gained from the back of the property with a window on the rear door being smashed.  Once inside an untidy search has been made and a safe containing jewellery and cash has been unscrewed from the floor and removed from the address.  Also taken from the address was a pair of distinctive 'Oakley' skiing goggles.

If you have seen anything suspicious, have any information which you think we will find useful or have CCTV covering the area, please ring 101 and quote Inc. 270, 9/6/19.

Premises are clearly being targeted when the occupants are away.  What these offences also have in common is that entry has been gained to the rear of the addresses as this area is sheltered from view.  We all enjoy privacy in our gardens, but what this privacy also provides is security to the offenders committing these offences as they know that once in the garden their criminal activities are hidden from view.

I urge you to remain vigilant and to report anything you think is suspicious to us on 101 immediately.  You are our eyes and ears and we reply on you to tell us what looks out of place in your communities.  You will never be wasting our time!!

I am also a big advocate of security systems.  Whether it be a CCTV system, security lighting or alarms - these type of systems are now very affordable and represent extremely good value for money.  I accept that money is hard earnt, however for a reasonably small cost you can give yourself that piece of mind by protecting your property and making yourself much less desirable to those coming in and looking to commit offences.  The premises that have been targeted over the last 24-48 hours appear to not to have had any home security and the rear of the address being hidden from view, which makes it very attractive to offenders also knowing that the occupants are away too.

If we can assist you with any home security advice, please get in touch and we can arrange to come and see you.

Thank you.
