THEFTS FROM GARAGES CONTINUE
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.
