Alert message sent 26/05/2017 14:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Crimes reported over the past seven days.
Burglary Dwelling
Between 1.00am and 10.15pm on Thursday 18 May in Central Avenue, Hucknall, entry was gained to a possibly insecure property and a search was made but nothing was taken.
At 3.00pm on Thursday 18 May in Hooley Street, Selston, a distraction burglary occurred.  A male came to the door saying they needed to re-route a temporary water pipe over the back garden.  The man was using a white Transit Van.  Later it was realised cash had been stolen.
Around 2.20pm on Thursday 18 May in Derbyshire Lane, Hucknall, an unknown male claiming to be from the water board entered a house and stole a safe.
Between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on Sunday 21 May in Bolingey Way, Hucknall, the lock on the front door of a house was forced and entry gained to the property.  We do not know if anything was taken.
Between Sunday 21 May and 5.30pm on Monday 22 May in Sandy Lane, Hucknall, a house was entered by forcing a rear ground floor window and an untidy search made of all rooms.  A digital camera, digital video camera, HP laptop computer, a 150lb draw crossbow, petrol powered water pump and a CCTV hard drive were stolen.
With the warmer weather we are all prone to leaving doors and windows open to allow a cool breeze into the house.  Unfortunately it also leaves an opening for the opportunist thief, they only need a couple of minutes in an empty room to pick up a few choice items, a bag, purse, mobile phone, car keys, all the usual things we leave laying around.  Always close doors and windows if you are leaving the room, it is a chore but so is dealing with the insurance claim and replacing stolen goods.
Burglary Other
Between Thursday 4 and Wednesday 17 May in Garden Road, Hucknall a shed door was forced.  A circular saw, drills, a paint stripper and a petrol hedge trimmer were stolen.
Between 11.30pm on Friday 19 May  and 11.30am on Saturday 20 may in Byton Road, Annesley,  a shed door was forced and a chainsaw, scrap metal and a wheelbarrow were stolen.
