Free Crime Prevention Advice

Posted in The Job - Experience by 200

I guess nearly 30 years of mixing with scum makes you pretty aware of the potential for crime around you; I never let the Mrs walk around Tescos with the opening of her shoulder-bag facing outwards and I never leave the car unattended with the stereo still attached.
In fact, I wouldn’t leave an empty sweet wrapper on the back seat lest some thieving toe-rag thinks there might be the chance of a free Murraymint in the offing.

Why is it that people leave several hundred and even thousands quids’ worth of electrical goodies in their cars?

Sat Navs are the latest. We’ve dealt with the theft of 3 this weekend alone.

You may be insured & it may be a company car but unless you want to spend the next 3 months picking glass splinters out of your arse, don’t leave it in the vehicle!

It’s portable, shiny & has lots of buttons to press and is therefore instant bait for Master Single-Braincell. He (yes, it’ll be a he) may not know how to turn on the bloody thing much less actually operate it but he does know how to smash windows.
