Burglary last night in S12

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

We live on a main road in S12 and were burgled by 3 teenage lads last night (we saw them running off)

 

They had the cheek to prise open a locked upvc window in full view of the main road, then turn the lights on and leave the curtains open while they robbed us. We bolt the kitchen door from the outside at night and they broke it whilst trying to get out of the house (they must have heard us upstairs)

 

We've had loads of stuff stolen, if anyone is offered any of the following items could you please let me or the police at Moss Way know (phone 01142 202020 for the number)

 

Sony Playstation 3 + Dualshock controllers, GTA4 and FIFA 09 games

 

Nintendo Wii + Wii Fit, Wii motes and a Rapala fishing game (very distinctive as the writing on the box is Spanish and the fishing rod attachmment is still here so it will just be the game in the box)

 

Apple Ipod nano (older model in black, very distinctive as it has a line of pixels that are blurred around 2/3 way down the screen)

 

Viglen Laptop in silver, used to be an old school laptop so has an 'electrical safety check' sticker on the power block, this may have been removed but there will still be residue there.

 

Canon Powershot G6 Camera (silver)

 

Acer N50 PDA with Tomtom navigator 6 memory card in it

 

Forbidden Kingdom and The Bank Job on Blu Ray, and 'How to lose friends and alienate people' on DVD - distinctive as they are rentals from Lovefilm and so are just in plastic sleeves without boxes.

 

Gucci black Monogram wallet, I dont suppose it will have my bank cards in it anymore but if it turns up I would like it back! Again I would recognise it.

 

All the electrical items have the power cables and leads with them, the burglars must have been in the house quite a while before we heard them. They left some very clear footprints on our black porcelain floor that the forensics were very pleased with, so there's a chance they might still be caught.

 

Thanks for any information

 

Rob

If there weren't people willing to buy goods they knew were knocked-off, there wouldn't be any market for these little scrotes. Sadly some people can only see the bargain they're getting and not the pain it's cost.

There seems to be quite a lot of trouble around S12 at the moment we live near Gleadless Common and a couple of weeks ago hubby and a couple of neighbours caught 3 lads breaking in to someones garden shed and held on to them until the police came. They were known to the police, wouldn't surprise me if its the same lot that broke in to your home.

why do you say that i have lived in both areas and i would say S12 has more type of these people than S2 in fact a lot more, in fact the part of the Manor i live has the lowest crime rate in the central area of Sheffield

 

my sympathies with you there are very few things worse than getting burgled
