Rayleigh house burgled as owners slept

Southend Standard: Thief broke into house and stole car while owner slept Thief broke into house and stole car while owner slept

POLICE are appealing for information following a burglary in which the victim's car was stolen while they slept.

The front door of a house in The Paddocks, Rayleigh, was jemmied open between 12.30am and 11.30am yesterday.

The items stolen from the house included the keys to a silver Hyundai Santa Fe which was parked on the driveway. The car was then stolen.

Officers are advising people to be vigilant and to ensure they double-lock their front doors when they go to bed.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Dc Shelley Utley, or her colleagues at Southend, on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The Police advise is faulty as double locking a door won't stop it being jemmied open. Its getting to the point when houses will need steel doors and shutters on windows.

I make you right....... it's getting to the point where you have to 'speed read' to keep up with all the reports of burglary ! It's virtually non stop since the new year.....

I was shocked to see a video in which using a pair of mole grips and a screw driver you can literally, silently rip the lock out of a PVC door in seconds. These locks are recommended by insurance companys who also know they are rubbish but fitted to 90% of doors!

It's hard to remember any crime statistics that were not eventually exposed as a farce..... they were back tracking a bit this morning though...... apparently 'austerity crime' (burglary, bag snatching, shop lifting etc) are significantly up, while violent crime is down...... personally i think your assessment is probably more reliable....

If you have a Government that hits the bottom end of the financial scale with austerity cuts that mean thousands have to rely on foodbanks (even if they are working full time) you are going to get a big increase in burglaries and other crimes which help people literally "put food on the table".

If the Government would tackle its deficit by making big powerful companies pay their taxes instead and put that money into supporting the bottom end, we would all be safer walking around town and be able to sleep more easily at night.

I HOPE EVERYONE REMEMBERS THAT WHEN IT IS TIME TO VOTE!! The "I'm alright Jack" brigade may even start to realise that austerity cuts don't just affect other people - EVERYONE is more likely to be a victim of crime.

I don't. I usually steal things and just sell them on. What's the point in working? Plus I've signed on for a bit extra money.

I'm not a scumbag. I just like to make easy money. Okay, I admit I'm lazy, but I like to have any easy life. Sod all that commuting to and from work.
