A message from a neighbour:-
I thought it wise to bring to your attention that there was a young man in his early 20’s snooping around the basement storage areas of peoples’ properties in Springfield Road late last night. I saw him walk down into what I think was either No. 130 or 128 (I haven’t checked yet and can’t quite remember), and look inside the under stair storage there.
He is in his early 20’s, white, about 6’, roundish face, stubble and was wearing a dark hoody, and frankly, looks like a thug. If you see him DO NOT APPROACH HIM OR CONFRONT HIM and call the police as he is a dangerous and violent individual and will attack you. He was with whom I can only assume was his girlfriend who was around 5’5”, dark, almost black hair, tied back in a pony tail. She was quite round and “shapely”, but not fat and was wearing black jeans, and I think a white jacket with fur around the hood. I have already reported him and our altercation to the police and he will be arrested for ABH if caught.
So, if you have anything valuable in your storage then I suggest putting an extra large padlock on it or moving it inside the house.
And remember, don’t have nightmares.”
