Bur­glary

Whangarei Report - - Opinion - _ Andrea Cromwell Whangarei

I feel very sorry for Rory and Ni­c­hole read­ing their story of stolen medals and mem­o­ries.

I had a home invasion about 9pm, while my friend and I were hav­ing a catch up af­ter many years. We had the TV on and the door shut. In those days I didn’t bother lock­ing up un­til I went to bed. Big mis­take! The point I want to make is that the bur­glars used my cell phone with cam­era to pho­to­graph my credit card and used it while trav­el­ling to Auck­land. Luck­ily, I heeded my sis­ter’s ad­vice and changed my cards next day. As they hadn’t taken them, I couldn’t see why they needed to be changed! A fort­night later, when my Visa ac­count and tele­phone ac­count came in, I knew why.

My house is now mon­i­tored night and day, with back-up se­cu­rity should the alarm go off when I’m not there. These sewer rats have no con­science.
