Look out for Prowlers!

Whilst delivering letters on Freshwell Gardens this week I was informed by two residents that a young black man in his early 20's was seen searching in front gardens and checking to see if vehicles were left unlocked. The matter has been reported to the Police and they have made contact with the witnesses.

Some Residents of Canon Avenue have informed me that a bike has been stolen from their garden and that they have also seen Eastern Europeans delving through some waste in their side alley.  A bike has also been stolen form a property at Fields Park Crescent.

I have also received several reports (Donald Drive/Freshwell Avenue/Canon Avenue/Somerville Road) of rummaging through charity clothing bags. Please ensure you put your bags out on the day of collection to prevent such abuse/theft.

On Inverclyde Gardens a house was burgled whilst the homeowner was away for just 20 minutes. The owner was aware of the need to ensure that UPVC Doors should be closed by lifting his door handle and twisting his key but did not do so. It is believed that the perpetrator used a hard plastic card to open the lock and I would urge local residents to make burglary more difficult by ensuring the multi-lock facility on these doors is utilised.

Please be vigilant as burglaries and robberies have increased in recent times.
