My daughterís boyfriendís car window was smashed last night. Only noticed this morning at 9am, did any one see or hear anything? Or any other car break ins. Smashed two of the windows but only taken a pair of trainers from the back.
Yep, our car also had a window smashed last Friday night- ours was parked on the corner of Felbrigg and Bawdale road.... rather surprisingly, they didnít even bother to steal the IPod or small change from the console.
Advice on the police thread: Park in a well lit area as close to your property as possible. LOL - do they know what parking is like around Oglander Road?
The chances of parking near your property if you return home before 6:30pm are pretty impossible. So, unless you go out and move your car after all the commuters have gone, you are stuck with your car far from home in any nook or cranny you can squeeze into.
So I'm confused - are these people smashing windows for fun or are they doing it to nick stuff? One poster above said they didn't steal the iPod or small change that was left in sight. So is it just mindless vandalism?
Really sorry to all who have had their cars smashed but do hope you report them all to the police...NOT because they will be able to do anything, but because we must get crimes recorded accurately so that when allocating resources, they take this upsurge of crime into consideration.

I heard the 'No Waiting' cones have been used on Hindmans Road (the ones Conway put out while the pavement works are ongoing), which suggests mindless vandalism. The 'pros' generally use something like a centre punch to create a hole through which they can access the inside door handle.
