Beware sneak in burglaries.

Dear Watch Member,

This is a general warning for residents.

There were two reported incidents of sneak in burglaries yesterday Wednesday 23rd April in the Stafford area.

Both incidents occurred during the daytime and offenders entered the properties via insecure doors before stealing handbags and purses from kitchen areas.

With the expected gradual improvement in weather it is important to remind neighbours to be on their guard and to make sure doors and windows are secure in rooms that are unoccupied.

Any suspicious activity should be reported to the police immediately.

Phone calls from ‘bogus police officers’

Dear Watch Member,

We are currently receiving calls from residents in the Stafford Borough area concerning phone calls purporting to be from the police saying that they have a man in custody who was using their credit cards and could they confirm their bank details. These calls are bogus calls made by people trying to pass themselves off as police officers. Please be advised not to converse with these callers or give out any bank details. Simply put the phone down and end the call.

Look after your vehicles.

Dear Watch Member,

Staffordshire Police has launched a campaign to raise awareness of car key burglary and provide vehicle owners with crime preventative advice.

Car key burglary is a crime that has increased in recent years due to improvements in car security; thieves now place a greater emphasis on stealing the keys rather than forcing the ignition.

Thieves are resorting to elaborate ways of getting hold of keys to steal high value vehicles, including removing keys through letter-boxes with ‘hook and cane’ fishing. Offenders are also gaining entry to properties via insecure doors and windows and many are breaking their way in.

Posters and postcards are being distributed to local households to advise owners of high value and highly sought after vehicles to take extra precautions, helping them to limit the chances of becoming a victim of car key burglary. Risks can be minimised by ensuring the following:

  • never leave your car keys near a door or window
  • keep your keys in a safe place and don’t leave spare keys around
  • invest in a good quality home security system
  • install security lights to the front and rear of your property and consider installing CCTV cameras
  • lock your house even when you are home
  • gate your driveway
  • invest in a tracking device for your vehicle and know how to activate it
  • park your vehicle in a secure garage overnight.

Chief Superintendent Jon Drake said “Many of the car key burglary offences are preventable with the offenders gaining entry to the house and the car keys via an insecure door or window. It is imperative that residents make sure their properties are secure during the day, evening and overnight even when they are home. We are working with officers from neighbouring forces to share intelligence, target, disrupt and arrest offenders travelling for the purpose of committing crimes. The use of automatic number plate recognition system (ANPR) via new fixed site systems and mobile technology ensures that we can have a real impact on preventing crime.

We urge householders to be vigilant and report anyone acting suspiciously to us via our non emergency number 101, or in an emergency 999.”
