There’s been an attempted house burglary at Shire Oak overnight, Saturday/Sunday 3-4th June 2017, in which intruders broke into a house in Shire Ridge – thankfully they were confronted and made their escape.
Resident Sarah commented on Facebook:
Burglary on Shire Ridge last night.
Broke into my neighbours through their patio, neighbour confronted them on the landing and luckily they legged it.
Think they were after car keys as it has happened before. Stay safe everyone
Thanks to Sarah for keeping us all informed.
The people doing this are more than likely doing it to raise cash from the proceeds of selling what they steal. If you know of anyone hawking around stuff that seems to be dubious, please grub them into the police – the stuff they’re flogging is probably nicked.
