CRIME HOTSPOTSLynn Carberry, Extended Police Family Co-ordinator, is now issuing site details where burglaries, both from the home and from cars, have been most prevalent this year. This, she hopes, will be a reminder to the general public where criminals like to target.
Locally, higher car crime (both stolen and broken into) have recently occurred in Warrington Road, Nidderdale Avenue and Holt Lane.
House crime (burglary and attempted burglary) have occurred in Longton Lane, Warburton Hey, Ashton Avenue, Warrington Road, Kendal Drive, Dane Court and Holly Court.
Of course, this does not mean that other areas are not potential targets. Please remember to secure homes and cars at all times. Burglars and Bogus Officials are operating in the area, and not just at nightime. Never leave keys on show, and expensive china and porcelain left on show increases the risk of you becoming a victim.
