A worrying anonymous tipoff reaches me from central Brownhills.
In the small hours of Monday 14th January 2013, some miscreant attempted to force the back door of a property in Narrow Lane, Brownhills. The property was occupied, and the intruded ran off when the upstairs lights were switched on.
This occurred at about 2am.
Please ensure you lock up well at night, replace bulbs in any non-functioning security lights, and make it as difficult as possible for ne’er do wells to get to the rear of your property. Make sure ladders are locked away, and garden tools in a place where they can’t be easily found.
This kind of incident is very rare in Brownhills, but the fact that this has occurred is concerning, so please take extra care, and please do report anything suspicious.
This is the second incident that the police have been involved with locally this month that they haven’t reported. That’s a bit disconcerting.
