There’s been another burglary in Ruddington – less than two weeks after a similar property was broken into on a neighbouring Street.
Nottinghamshire Police say the latest incident happened in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday 28th March) at around 3.15am at a house on Grange Avenue. This is just around a the corner from the scene of another break-in on Brookside Road on March 15th. However officers have so far released no further details, nor any indication of whether they think the crimes are linked.
If you have any information about this incident – particularly if you have CCTV and may have picked something up – you’re asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police as soon as possible on 101 quoting incident number 000068-28032017.
Following this latest theft, Nottinghamshire Police are reminding us of their crime prevention advice:
Ensure you lock your doors and windows even when you are in.
Fit good quality locks to your exterior doors.
If you have an intruder alarm make sure you set it when you go out and when you go to bed.
Leave a light on when it’s dark, make use of timer switches and consider leaving a radio on or investing in a fake TV device.
Register your property for free on the national property database www.immobilise.com Immobilise helps Police to reunite stolen items with their rightful owners in the event of them being recovered.
Protectively mark your valuable property with your name and postcode preferably using a visible property marking kit such as Cremark or SelectaMARK and don’t leave valuables such as laptops on view.
Take your keys to bed with you; don’t leave them in door locks or window locks, or in view of windows and doors.
Confirm the identity of anyone who calls at your home who you don’t know. Beware of bogus officials. Not sure? Don’t open the door.
