Attempted burglary in Newton Street, High Park, Southport, Sunday 14 December 2015
A High Park resident contacted OTSnews regarding an attempted burglary that took place last nigh on Newton Street. He said: “At about 4.20pm (Sunday) we had an attempted break in into our house.
A male wearing black clothes with his hood up entered our garden and opened our back door luckily my dogs reacted to it and when I ran out with my dad he was gone.”
“There has been two males hanging about afterwards but when I drove round looking for them they have disappeared that was on Newton street in high park”.
“I have also rang the police on 101 and made a statement to make them aware of the situation”.
Local police are investigating and call upon people in the Southport to take more time to ensure their property and deter thieves.
It is vital that we all do everything we can to stop these people in their tracks.
“It doesn’t take long to double-check you’ve locked up your house or car properly and it could save you the hours of stress and upset that come with being burgled.”
Simple steps to deter burglars and car thieves, include:
Lock front and back doors when you are elsewhere in the house or in your back garden
Make sure you lock UPVC doors properly by lifting the handle and turning the key
Make use of your burglar alarm when you are going out or to bed at night
Keep valuables such as laptops, phones and handbags out of sight and away from windows where someone peering in can spot them
Don’t leave valuables on display in your vehicle – take them with you or, if you can’t, at least put them out of sight in the boot
Always lock your vehicle, even if only leaving it unattended for a few moments, and activate the alarm.
