The Easter period has seen the number of burglaries across Kenilworth significantly increase. Residents are being warned that they need to take more time to notice things going on around their neighbourhoods and report anything that looks suspicious after a number of break ins have taken place as a result of offenders going round the backs of properties and forcing rear windows and doors.
Crown Watch is encouraging people to be nosey, not in the sense of other people’s business, but nosey about what is going on outside in the street, road or footpath, who is that person walking down or around a property? What is that car or van that has gone down the road three times in the past few minutes?
Details of the latest crimes, that have taken place in the eastern area of the Kenilworth, are as follows;
