There was a burglary in Horndean First Avenue between Wednesday 06th of September 14:00 and Thursday the 7th of September at 00:30 pm.
Let us know if you saw anything suspicious at this time by calling 101 and referencing crime number 44170347552.
Please remember to keep windows secure and lock all doors
Use timer switches (available from most D.I.Y stores) to switch on lights, radios while you are away from the home to make it look and sound occupied.
Ensure you shut and lock windows and doors when you return home and settle down for the evening.
Ensure you have used padlocks on the side gates to deny access to the rear of the property.
Ensure your outside lighting is in working order (consider low level ambient light on a dusk to dawn sensor) this will activate even when you are not at home.
After the summer, secure your garden tools and garden equipment in a locked and alarmed shed or garage for the winter so that they cannot be used to gain entry to your home.
Property mark belongings with your house number and postcode, keep a list of any makes, models and serial numbers. Take photos of jewellery. Register your items for free at www.immobilise.com. Using this service will assist the police in returning property to the rightful owner should it be stolen.
This is a good time to address your security, fit extra door and window locks. If you are feeling vulnerable or are elderly, ask for a free home safety and security survey by the Bobby Trust and call 0300 777 0157 for an appointment
