GARAGE BREAK-INS - Watch Out, There's a Thief About!

There have been several break-ins recently in the Parkside area of Houghton Regis. Often the garage is just broken into, and the owner is unaware of anything taken. The most recent incidents were:

* Long Meadow, between 4:30 p.m. on the 25th and 9:30 a.m. on the 26th May. The offender has tried to break the lock on the door to the garage. No entry has been gained and no property has been taken. 

* Dolphin Drive, between 7:00 p.m. on the 25th and 7:00 p.m. on the 26th May. The offender has forced open the wooden door to the garage. A ladies bike and food from a freezer have been taken.

Crime References: J D / 2 0 1 5 4 / 2014, and J D / 2 0 2 2 5 / 2014.

Crime Reduction Advice:

* Check that all doors and windows are locked at all times.

* Ensure that security lighting covers the building.

* Make sure that any connecting doors in the house are secure at all times.

* Consider fitting a garage alarm.

* Valuable property can be secured in a cage or bolted to the ground.
