A 76-year-old Carlisle woman was dis­turbed in her home on the night of Oc­to­ber 19. A young, dark­skinned woman tried to bur­gle the home by en­ter­ing through a doggy door. The el­derly woman grabbed the would-be thief and es­corted her to the door be­fore call­ing po­lice. No one was hurt and noth­ing was stolen. Kens­ing­ton Po­lice are still see­ing the trend of theft from garages and sheds. Ex­pen­sive items left in plain view from the street are easy pick­ings for thieves. Many of th­ese re­ports could have been avoided had the owner sim­ply se­cured the garage. Trades­man tools are also be­ing stolen from ve­hi­cles, most left ly­ing on the back seat. Take the time and spend the ex­tra money to at least fit a qual­ity locked box. This should hope­fully re­duce the chances of be­com­ing the next vic­tim.
