Neighbour knocked on the door around half eight saying they’d just come back from an evening out and her side alley door/gate was swinging open so to check our back garden…:crazy: Sure enough trail of footprints through the mud in the alley and they’ve tried having my sons bike away as it was moved from where i put it under cover earlier…its a wake up call as i have’nt bothered chaining up the scoots of late…mistake i won’t be making again, Cannot believe they were snooping about in my back garden whilst we were indoors!:w00t: or how they got over the side alley door as its 8 foot high with spikes along the top…but i reckon the dog disturbed them and they legged it as nowt else is missing and he’s in the garage so he must have heard them and barked:D so now the cctv is switched back on and videoing the back garden alarm is now switched on all the time and my assortment of various weapons is close to hand…and i soooooo hope they come back tonight:D;)
So just check your security people as all the chavs in your area will have family from wherever down for christmas and on an evening when they have nothing to do they could be eyeing up your pride and joy…:crying:
Yes my Ex-husband just found out from next door neighbour that some teenager were trying to steal his mountain bike and the next door’s one as well but luckily they got scared of the dog and next door neighbours went chasing after them . They were lucky
We want a dog but the landlord wont even let us have a cat so as i was saying the other night wasp we may be in the market for a ferret now that the last of our rats has snuffed it…can ferrets be trained to only bite thieving chavs ?;)
Someone knocked at the door of a 80 year old over the road saying they were my next door neighbours cousin, were staying there and had got locked out so could they borrow £20 to get to the Elephant And Castle?
Well the little feckers did’nt come back…soooo disapointed:doze: i slept with the garden alarm next to me head and it did’nt go off once…at least it gave me a wake up call and in future i wont be so lapse with security:D New house alarm on order for january and a top of the range alarm for me workshop to:D oh and cctv signs ordered for the front gate oh and that camera is never going to be switched off again;)
Yer we had the same thing in southend last night my wife was in the lounge and someone tried the patio doors to see if they were open, my dog went mad and i went out looking for them but saw nothing. spent today adding security, as i dont want my ps3 getting stolen before i play with it. As i teach martial arts i have a few weapons at hand too but would be a shame to get them dirty with chav scum.
Sorry to hear about your prowlers, SammI do hope your CCTV is good quality, most of the systems I’ve seen in commercial premises have been of a shockingly bad quality and there’s no chance of identifying people from them.
Have a think about whether you need signs, it can work for & against you.
You could also invite your local police’s crime prevention officer around, I’m sure Essex still have them and he might be able to offer some good advice to secure your garden & house
i bet the white stilletos are murder for chasing crims?
