RAINHILL CRIME FIGURES for MAY 2005
There were SIX
burglaries from houses and one attempted burglary during the month. These are similar figures to the last reported figures on the website for March 2005.
Car crimes continue to cause concern and TWELVE
cars were broken into and THREE
cars were stolen. Little if any improvement on the last figures.
The police have teamed up with Ford dealers to run an initiative to secure cd/radio players in Ford cars. This service is FREE and involves inserting four grub screws into the player and displaying a window sticker. Interested? Contact your local Community Support Officer or Ford dealer direct.
Please be aware that the Village is a target area for these crimes and ensure all reasonable precautions to safeguard your property are taken.
