Good afternoon Citizen
Op Intercept Update:
Solihull Officers have made a number of arrests since our last update. The Solihull Investigation Team has made 3 arrests relating to burglary offences and 4 arrests for vehicle crime. The 7 suspects are believed to be responsible for numerous offences locally and further afield.
Our focus remains on targeting burglary, vehicle crime and robbery offenders as we approach a time of year where we usually see a rise in the number of offences due to the darker nights.
Last night two of the burglaries reported in Solihull were committed by offenders that accessed homes through insecure doors.Please make sure that you check all doors and windows are locked and any keys are removed from the locks before going to bed.
Another common theme has been offenders climbing up to first floor windows with the aim of stealing jewellery. If your first floor windows can be accessed by climbing please consider fitting extra window locks. An intruder alarm and good security lighting are also a deterrent.
Remember it is dark at around 4.30pm now so if you return home after that set a light timer to come on so that your house is not in darkness. If you are considering improving your home security a good place to start is to make sure your exterior door locks are anti-snap, watch this video to see just how simple that is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZMORGKkbxU
