Whilst we should remember that burglaries are still rare, it is in the best interest of everyone in the community if we take small steps to guard against break-ins. This morning, I received the following information from PC Welsh, the local Community Officer, after several burglaries around South Edinburgh recently.
‘There have been 2 in Buckstone Terrace and Road and an attempt in Buckstone Rise. There has also been one in Oxgangs Road.
These have either occurred during the day or evening time and by entering the property from rear garden and forcing door or window or smashing door or window.
Small electronic items have been stolen, as well as jewellery and cash. There have also been further break-ins in the Currie area where cars have been taken.’
Can everybody please be vigilant and phone the police immediately with regard to any suspicious activity.
