Laptop and Xbox stolen in Brownhills burglary – please keep a lookout

I had been hoping the recent rise in burglaries would recede by now. Sadly it would seem not to be the case. Imagery from Bing! Maps.

Just a quick headsup to anyone offered a cheap Lenovo Laptop or Xbox locally: There’s every chance they’re stolen property, as these items were taken in a burglary from a flat in Brownhills High Street yesterday (Tuesday 18th July 2017).

If anyone is offered a laptop or Xbox for sale please message me as a young friend has had his flat broken into today in Brownhills High Street.

I believe the burglary was early evening, perpetrated by a youth, possibly on a bike.

The stolen laptop was a Levono, and the console was an Xbox plus controllers.

The burglary was sometime between 8.00am 6.30pm can’t be more specific on time as young lad was out at work.

He works hard for a living and comes home to find his possessions stolen znd neighbours broken into as well.

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

If you’re offered a cheap 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 this particular incident or any of the others in 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.
