HOT WEATHER - GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR THIEVES!

Now that the weather has turned hot and sticky and we are all trying to get a cool breeze flowing through our houses to keep us cool it would appear that burglars and thieves are gleefully rubbing their grubby little mits.
Reading through the crime figures above there are several reported crimes that really should not have happened. I'm sorry to say this but the days when you could leave your front door unlocked and windows open safe in the knowledge that crime doesn't happen out here in the countryside have long gone. The opportunist thief is never far away. If you do have your doors and windows open please be aware that your house and property are more vulnerable to opportunist thieves. If you do leave handbags in your car (sorry to pick on the ladies) it is likely to get stolen. If your handbag is that big that you can't take it with you might I suggest that you perhaps leave the kitchen sink at home! I know I will probably get shot for saying that but all I am trying to do is protect your property and prevent the misery, anger and inconvenience this type of theft causes.
