Burglary

Alert message sent 23/09/2019 16:49:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Residents.
A burglary has taken place on Weymoor Road in Harborne on the 21st September in the early hours of the morning where the Offender has forced the front window to gain entry.
We are urging Residents to be vigilant and to secure your property.
Below is some crime prevention advice.
Did you know?
• Burglars don’t like stealing property, which has been marked with your postcode – as it is easier for the police to identify the property as stolen.
• There are fewer burglaries committed in Neighbourhood Watch areas. They can help you protect your home – why not join in your local scheme or create your own if there isn’t one.
Here is what you can do to help the police beat the burglar.
How secure is your home?
1. Always lock your front door from the inside – in particular UPVc front doors as these are sometimes left unlocked when people are at home.
2. Only leave ground floor windows open and unlocked if you are to be in that room for a period of time.
3. Don’t leave back doors open if you’re going to be upstairs for any length of time - burglars often gain access to people’s homes via back gardens.
4. Close and lock all upstairs windows when you go out.
5. Record serial numbers of property. You can do this on www.immobilise.com or create your own document (which is stored safely).
6. Make an inventory of any jewellery you own (including any engraving or marks) and take photos of the jewellery. Use a safe to store jewellery – your bank can advise you on this.
7. Take a look around the house and see where you are vulnerable. If you think you’re vulnerable, so will a thief!

Kind Regards
