IN the last month there has been a number of burglaries, theft from cars and from gardens.

The thief seems to prowl the streets looking for targets, often blatantly going down peoples driveways, and returning later armed with a house brick to smash a window to gain entry to property.

Items this person steals seem very strange.

He takes broken ornaments, pint glasses, house plants and other items that would have little or no value except to the victim.

There seems to be another group who break into houses and steal more expensive property.

Also a motor home has been stolen.

The police have promised a greater presence in the area but it does not seem to have deterred these criminals.
