THIEVES NO FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS
WITH the weather improving, we’ve seen a few sneak-in, sneak-out burglaries when people have left doors and garage entries unlocked. Keep your doors and windows locked and valuable items such as home computers, laptops, stereos and mobile phones out of sight. Do not leave spare keys hidden outside - leave them with a neighbour, friend or relative. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to reduce the opportunity for burglars to hide and increase visibility from the street. Be mindful of posting information on social media; saying you’re on holiday suggests you aren’t home. Use your home alarm system.
