Extra patrols after six burglaries in three days

First published in News

Extra police patrols are in place after a spate of Braintree burglaries.

Officers will be targeting the hotspots and giving advice on how to safeguard against break-ins to people in the area.

Essex Police has released details of six burglaries which took place in just three days across the Braintree and Halstead areas.

Officers were called to a home in Rosemary Avenue, Braintree, after a victim discovered someone had unsuccessfully tried to force open the back door on January 5.

They were also called to Sunnyside in Braintree the following day but it is not yet known what was taken.

Also on January 6 burglars targeted a Rayne Road home and smashed in a back door to steal jewellery, a lap top, perfumes and knifes.

The following day a home in Martens Meadow, Braintree, was ransacked at 5.45pm and the burglars took foreign currency, a pillow case and stole a silver Ford Focus, registration EA09YLY from the drive.

On January 8 burglars also raided a Chelmer Road home and made a messy search of the home, but it not clear what was taken at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call Essex Police on 101.

That's a bit much Keith. Come off it. You are asking them to think!

If they do, the next thing is we'll be inundated with reports of flying pigs

Just had a flash of inspiration though. 'Think before you ink' - do you like that slogan? Good innit? Should have thought of that 50 years ago in the days of fountain pens. (Story of my life that is . Born too bloody late!)

I don't suppose this lot have ever had the pleasure of dipping a nib into an inkwell, let alone a pellet of blotting paper to flick across the classroom when the teacher wasn't looking eh? I got Victor Cathcart right in the neck once.

Christ, that brings back memories of Manor Street and Miss Jarvis. She still terrorizes me now when I think of her. Shudder shudder!!
