MOTORBIKE THEFT

A motorbike was stolen today from outside 71 Haliburton Road, belonging to another resident on the road. This is the second time this resident has had a bike stolen in the last few months.

BREAK IN

A house on Haliburton Road has been broken into during the early house of this morning. It is believed that the culprits observed the residents leaving for holiday this morning, and targeting the house immediately, gaining access from the back of the house.

Please everyone be vigilant, especially for neighbours on holiday.

I recently read that burglaries are significantly reduced if the burglar can see a ‘nest cam’ or CCTV or some sort at the most likely point of entry. Its worth thinking about, especially if you don’t have an alarm.

Finally, its time for me to hand over the reigns of Neighbourhood Watch to another volunteer. There are any number of police notifications and meetings that I simply don’t have time to attend. They are not strictly necessary, whoever takes over can stick to the email alerts as I do, but if anyone is keen to take this on, there is scope to expand it!

Please let me know if you are interested, I’ve done it for over 5 years and now its time to hand it on.

MOPEDS, BREAK-IN, STOLEN BIKES AND ATTEMPTED ASSAULT

There have been several incidences over the past week that we should be looking out for.

Firstly two neighbours have reported seeing young lads hanging around on mopeds with their faces covered with carves. Some have no number plates, which in itself is suspicious.

Following the report of one of these sightings on Saturday, a house on Newry Road was broken into on saturday evening (before midnight while the owners were out). A sash window was jemmied open and the bold popped out (this is how we were broken into a number of years ago and we put very very long screws into the new bolt).

Please report anything you see to 101, or if you are really concerned that a crime is about to be committed then call 999. Obviously its helpful if you let me know as well, but don’t wait to call the police.

On Saturday evening there was also a report of a bike theft from the neighbourhood. In conjunction with this, or perhaps completely independently of this, a resident who walks around the pit park area has twice reported bikes hidden in long grass at pit park (6 in total in the last month), presumably stolen locally for collection at a later time. The bikes have been recovered by the resident and the police called. If you use pit park, keep your eyes peeled and report anything suspicious.

Finally, on Monday morning around 10am, an Orleans Park pupil, female 15, was assaulted on her way to school, while walking through the alleyway next to Orleans Primary school. A woman passerby was able to stop the assault and call the police. The suspect was a man around 50 wearing a beige suit-like jacket. I’m just passing this on as I’m sure most of us use that alleyway at some time, so especially for the females of all ages around here, please be vigilant.

There have been a few incidents of vehicles being broken into in our roads and in the local area. Someone had their window smashed when parking at Marble Hill Park a couple of weeks ago, along with other cars at the same time. Another van was broken into in Northcote Road. A third car was left unlocked in Haliburton Road and a child’s bike was stolen.

Please be careful about locking your cars and not leaving anything on display. People really are out there every night to see what they can take.

Information form the police on abandoned cars:
Issues with parked vehicles that don’t seem to belong to anyone in the neighbourhood.
If you see something in your location like this then the first step is to take the registration number and using the Richmond Council website go to the abandoned vehicle page http://www.richmond.gov.uk/services/roads_and_transport/vehicles/abandoned_vehicles.
This page gives you a link to check if the vehicle is taxed and has an MOT.
If the Tax and / or MOT has run out fill in the details to report it as an abandoned vehicle.
The enforcement team will inspect the vehicle and if it is not reported as stolen take the following actions:
If only the MOT has run out put an abandoned vehicle notice on it.
If the vehicle is claimed within 7 days the enforcement team will followup the owner to ensure the vehicle is MOTed.
If the vehicle is not claimed back it will be taken and scrapped.
If the Tax has run out the enforcment team will inform the DVLA contractor who will carry out the necessary enforcement such as fines.
We encourage everyone who sees an unusual vehicle parked in their area to check it out in this manner as untaxed and un MOTed vehicles are illegal and present a danger to us on the road.

Bit of a random one this, but a resident has reported his delivered milk being stolen from his doorstep between 7.30 and 8.30am. The fact that this has happened twice suggests that this is targeted.
Has anyone else had anything stolen from their front gardens?

HOUSE EGGED

In the early hours of this morning, around 1.45am, a house in our neighbourhood was egged by someone thought to be riding a scooter.

Any motive for this is unknown, beyond the fact that a downstairs light was on at this time.

If you have also been targeted, please let me know, and more importantly, report it to 101.

Many thanks
