Shocking walk-in burglary in Brownhills – take care, folks.

Ogley hay is normally a fairly low crime area. Imagery from Bing! Maps.

A troubling burglary took place in Ogley hay this weekend, when on the evening of Saturday, 27th May 2017 opportunist thieves walked into the house of an old friend of the blog and took a purse and a Dell laptop, while the lady who lives there was at home.

They wrote:

Hi Bob

Saturday night at around half past nine two men stole a few things from our house.

Please if anyone knows of anyone trying to sell a Dell laptop it has a baby blue lid.

Also a purse was taken of my mums which has a lot of meaning with it… if anyone sees anything please contact us.

And share this post


Thanks for letting me know, and my sympathies for the loss. This really is most shocking.

If you’re offered laptop or other goods, always think hard about where they might have come from, and by all means grub the people flogging them into the rozzers – the stuff is probably nicked. Next time, it could be your stuff they take.

Anyone with information on the recent spate of thefts is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
