Hide your ladders ….

We have had a small series of burglaries of houses across the Stratford District where ladders found at the properties have been used to access first floor windows. It is also thought that the thieves have used this method to avoid activating alarms on the ground floor, as there have been a few offences in the past month where only the first floor has been searched. Please ensure that any ladders are secured or put out of site.
