messageAnother car break-in in Wood Vale
Posted by Growlybear October 17, 01:57PM

My car was broken again last night on my driveway in Wood Vale - FCC the third time in a few months. The first and second times it happened, the thieves must have cloned the signal from my key but itís been kept in a Faraday box since then, so last night they smashed the window instead. I donít keep anything of any value in the car - the first time someone took about 50p in change that I had in a pot for parking.

Last night, the thief took my bright purple make up bag. It has no value but I really like it. I assume that it wIll have been dumped somewhere nearby once the thief found that it only had a powder compact and lipstick inside so if anyone notices it in their front garden or in the street, I would be really grateful if they could let me know!

Whoever broke into the car dropped a pair of spectacles on the ground next to it so if anyone else has had a break in and had their glasses taken, let me know.

Sorry to hear this.

Is it possible that the glasses belonged to the thief? If so, might they have fingerprints on them?

ETA sorry, duh, they may have fingerprints on them even if they didn't belong to the thief.

Yes, I wondered if they could belong to the thief. Iím going to report it to the non emergency police number. I suspect they wonít send the Sweeney round to check for fingerprints or DNA!
