A burglary took place at Farrer House yesterday whilst the resident popped out for twenty minutes. Two white males wearing hoodies were witnessed leaving the block carrying heavily laden rucksacks.
The thieves gained access by busting open the front door, which was the older type door. Residents who do not have what most people refer to as the "new doors" need to be extra vigilant. Most people have the "new doors" which were fitted 15 years ago and are extremely strong and resistant to being broken into. Prior to their fitting, burglaries on Crossfields were highly frequent.
Car owners should also avoid leaving possessions on view, and people should make sure windows are closed when they go out, since there are obviously some opportunistic thieves targeting the area.
