Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

Christ­mas is the time for giv­ing – that rule ap­plies to most of us but the bad­dies are the ex­cep­tion. For them, Christ­mas is clearly a time for tak­ing. They like noth­ing bet­ter than break­ing into your houses know­ing that your Christ­mas presents are wrapped and dis­played un­der the fam­ily Christ­mas tree. Bad­dies don’t give a sec­ond thought to the fact that your kids will miss out on re­ceiv­ing their presents or that a lot of thought has been given to se­lect­ing the right gift. Ba­si­cally they are low-life scum­bags who view your hard work and sac­ri­fices as too much of an op­por­tu­nity to pass up. You won’t find too many bad­dies plan­ning and preparing for this Christ­mas. The only plan­ning they will be do­ing is work­ing out how to break into some­one else’s house to steal their valu­ables. Please en­sure that your house is se­cure and make it as dif­fi­cult as pos­si­ble to bur­gle. No­tify your neigh­bours if you are go­ing away for a few days. If you are go­ing away for an ex­tended pe­riod, no­tify your lo­cal po­lice sta­tion. – De­tec­tive Sergeant Gary Th­waites.
