Shiregreen burglary

Recommended Posts

Had a phone call off our neighbour Sunday dinner to say we'd been burgled, we were out for the night visiting family. I know we're not the only ones but still were absolutely gutted, my fiancée is really worried now for our safety, we have 2 children a 6month old and a 2 year old, who we worry about obviously.

Basically it was a brick through the kitchen window and they, 2 trainer prints found at point of entry,cleaned out all high value stuff. I know we won't see anything back but if anyone around here is offered stuff please let me know as ill quite happily take a bar round and ask nicely for our stuff, seriously though if anyone I offered stuff let me know or the police.

There was a 37" Toshiba LCD HD TV, PS3, 14 PS3 games, 14 Blurays valuable irreplaceable jewellery boxes full aswell as other things.

It was bad enough being burgled I could have handled a smash and grab on the front room but not having all our drawers rifled through aswell!!

That's what burglary is to get whatever they consider valuable. We were done twice, the second time hardly impacted at all but it was the feeling that someone could break into your home. After the first time it never felt like it was ours.

After being bugrled twice we have invested in shutters (from Complete Shutters) for the patio doors and rear windows which in conjunction with our new "crimebuster" composite doors means we can now leave the house without a feeling of dread.

They are the best investments we have made and at cost of £1200 fitted i think good value for the peace of mind they give.

They are not shop shutters,they are decorative for domestic windows,out of interest which route do you intend on going down ? because i cant think of many other ways of physically stopping a burgular gaining access.

 

Each to their own,but as you said the distress caused by someone rifling through your property is not something i want again and at least now i don't have to worry,unless of course they come equipped with an angle grinder !

I'm not interested in a guard dog we have a cat, don't think he'd be too pleased lol.

We live on Beck by the way.

Oh and now I get the whole shutter thing, I just pictured shop shutters.

the route we're going to go down.

 

"Between April 2012 and March 2013, South Yorkshire Police report that house burglaries increased by eight per cent with 8,229 crimes reported compared with 7,654 in the year before."

 

. . . Perhaps people who live in shops, or more secure houses, would still have their 37" Toshiba LCD HD TV, PS3, 14 PS3 games, 14 Blurays valuable irreplaceable jewellery boxes full . . . aswell as other things.

 

That is the world that we live in.
