messageHome break-in overnight on Barry Road (nr Goodrich)
Posted by asybowb January 29, 04:23AM

A thankfully unsuccessful, but no less alarming, breaking and entering overnight by two youths.

Gained entry by smashing the front window of the external door and reaching around to unlock the door. Then proceeded to kick down the door of the ground flat but met with resistance on the other side by ground floor owner and fled.

Opportunistic and wholly unsophisticated, can only recommend that residents invest in front porch lighting (day/motion sensors) and keep all valuables away from your front door letterbox. We are a house of flats but the indication is that they thought they were breaking into a house.

Amazingly, for Barry Road - fled on foot. About 3.30am. Police were with us within five minutes so credit to them.

Thanks so much for sharing and I am so sorry to hear what happened. I am glad everyone is ok.
I also live on Barry Road, close to you I think so thanks for the heads up and tip on the porch light.
