Number Of Break Ins In The Area

This was on the Melbourne Facebook page yesterday. ALERT!
There have been 4 residential burglaries reported in the last 5 days, at Pocklington, Barmby Moor, Seaton Ross and Market Weighton and a further attempted break in at Allerthorpe, where damage was caused to a rear patio door lock.
Often when residents are away on holiday, the reported MO is that rear doors are being smashed to gain entry and an untidy search being carried out with jewellery being stolen.
If you are going away from home then consider crime prevention measures such as ensuring valuables are kept out of sight and somewhere secure, asking a friend / neighbour you know and trust to house sit, or conduct regulars visits to check on your property for you.
If you notice any suspicious activity in your area please contact Humberside Police Non-Emergency number 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress. Thank you.

I also know of another break in in the Melbourne/Ellerton area where tools and bikes were taken, so please be vigilant and safety conscious.
