Watch out, there's a sneaky burglar down our street...

A cheeky burglar has robbed one of my neighbours right here on Church Street, DSJ...

The thief walked in through an unlocked backdoor last Friday lunchtime while the victim was at home and helped him - or her - self to a purse containing about £40 from a bag which was on a chair near the unlocked door.

Police are advising people to keep doors locked even when you're at home and keep your valuables out of sight.

Anyone with any information should call Stamford Police on 01780 752222, quoting the relevant incident number 193 of January 30. Or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

What's the betting that if he gets caught he just gets a slap on the wrist.

Poor person.

Surely Market Deeping police station is the best to call.

not if he was caught burgling my home.

yes, i'm sure any information will be gratefully received at our local police station, but it's fair to point out that the Deepings is within the Stamford Sector for policing purposes.

Geoffrey:

with more police on Lincolnshire streets, backed by 150 police community support officers that were not there under the Tories, crime is substantially down on when you lot ran the country - and there are actually tougher sentences for burglars than ten years ago.
