Just wanted to warn people that there currently appears to be a spate of attempted and successful burglaries in and around the Forest Hill area. We are aware of at least one attempt further up our road, and yesterday we returned home from work to find that we had been less lucky.

Having first unsuccesfully tried to lever open our rear kitchen window, the theives resorted to smashing though the double glazing to gain entry to the house before making off with anything valueable and easily carried - laptops, jewelery, that kind of thing.

Then, when the emergancy glazier arrived to secure the property, he told us that he had just come from a job at a house near the post office depot behind the mainilne station where they had also been burlged with pretty much the same m.o.

Thinking back, we seem to think there there has been an increase of people knocking on the front door for minor things in the last few weeks, maybe we're just being paranoid, but it feels like the area was being scoped out for likely targets.. either way, I thought I should let people know and ask to keep an eye out for people hanging about gardens or entrances to the rear of your or your neighbours property.
