A friend of mine called me in tears at midnight last night, her parents had gone away for a few days leaving her to look after the house, just before midnight she hears a noise, went downstairs and found that somebody had broken in.

This house normally has a (very) large family there, so for some low-life scum to break in on the one night there is a teenage girl alone they must have known (it must be getting around that pensioners fight back).

The police have been and recovered some "useful" evidence, and there are now a few people staying with her until the family comes back.

They took:
32" silver CRT TV (now they are heavy)

37" Philips Plasma TV

Freeview Box (10 ASDA jobbie)

These items aren't exceptionally valuable, and at least she's okay, but these are a hard working family and these items had only just been replaced from the last time somebody broke in there, understandably everyone is very upset.

The house is on Seymour St near St Caths/Co-op, so if anyone hears anything it would be useful.

I'll second PP, if only people wouldn't buy knocked off gear these scumbags would have no way of getting shut, its about time the thief went to jail and the person who buys it sit with them, and for many years, not 5 minutes and their out again. PRICKS.

Friends, family, and neighbours.
Social networking sites visited by aforesaid people, suddenly the circle of those in the know increases dramatically!!

Plus if they've been done before the scum often return to see if the items have been replaced!!

They're second hand movable property dealers.

And judging by the meteoric increase in thefts of all kinds of late, their happy and satisfied customer base is increasing.

It's surprising how many burglaries there are up in that area, our kid's been done over too. It's got to be the same low lifes each time and the sooner they are caught and banged up the better. Glad the girl's alright.

That's also why you should never put your address on a public forum.

Sorry to hear about this, these burglaries seem to be rising, something needs to be done.

Maybe the adoption of punishments from other countries would help but then again that's when human rights and all that talk comes into it.

I agree frog but the idiots that run this country seem to think it's a bad thing.

Given recent punishments (if any are given) it's hardly surprising people are starting to take the law into their own hands.
What gets me is it's the victim of the crime that gets harsher punishment for it.

God I hope the young girls ok, we had a break in while we were all home in the middle of the night and the barstard had the cheek to come into our bedroom. Scariest thing about it was I heard someone walking around the stairs and landing and thought one of the kids was out of bed so it was obvious thats this guy had checked the other rooms (the kids bedrooms) before ours, thank god it was just a scumbag burglar and not a nutjob god only knows what else might have happened. For such a long time after I was obsessive about checking locks on the doors and windows before bed. Has the victim support been out to see her? they offer counciling and all sorts, they even arranged for us to have a free alarm fitted and security lights which made me feel a lot better. Hope shes doing ok.
