Burglary and car theft in Southdown Avenue

This is from a resident this morning, Saturday 28th September:-

“A house along the road in Southdown Avenue was burgled last night and completely turned upside down. They may have tried getting in to ours when they took the car a couple of nights ago but we had the door bolted as well which may have saved us. I’ve put on the local community board to warn people.

If you keep keys behind your door move them, they fished ours through the letter box.”
