An update from the local policing team for Coulsdon East
We want to make you aware of burglaries on the ward. We had another one on the 6th March in Downs Road where the occupants were on holiday. Entry was through a rear window.
Also had burglaries over the last couple of weeks in Reddown Road, Margaret Way and Caterham Drive. Common items taken are normally jewellery and small items, so be wary of where you store these items at night and during the day.
A Vespa bike stolen from the victim’s drive between the 6th and 8th March in Keston Avenue.
We have to be vigilant and report anything suspicious. If you know your neighbours are on holiday or have gone away for a few days let us know, at least then we can keep an eye on the property.
Ensure you lock up when you go out. Put a house alarm on if you have one. Included is an attachment with useful tips.
We will patrol as much as possible.
