House burglary in Shire Oak – be on your guard, folks. Image from Bing! Maps.

A reader living in the Shire Oak area has been in touch with me asking to share with readers that they had their car stolen on Monday night (4th June 2016) – the car was taken from a locked garage which was broken into.

The reader said:

Hello Bob,

I just thought I would drop you a line as the garages where I live in the Shire Oak area were broken on Monday Night (Monday 4th July 2016) and I have had my car stolen, joy ridden around Oak Park and then ditched and set on fire.

The garages were all locked and they have forced entry using a hammer. They also tried to hotwire my motorcycle.

Could you please post on your blog to make people aware that these burlgularys/thefts are happening in the area and to be vigilant.

Thank you

I note that this isn’t the first car in recent weeks to be burned out at Oak Park.

Please be vigilant, and I’d ask anyone with information to contact the Police, no matter how trivial you think it may be. It could, after all, be your motor next.

Anyone with information is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Cheers all.
