Attempt Burglary

Dear Residents, 

This is to inform you that there has been an attempt burglary on Lydiat Lane,  Alderley Edge. This has occurred between 7th & 8th May.  

Most burglaries are carried out by opportunist thieves, below are some ideas to prevent this happening to you. 

  • When you go out, always lock the doors and windows.
  • Put your garden tools away, these provide an easy way to force entry to your house.
  • Make the house appear occupied, draw the curtains and leave a light on.
  • Don't leave spare keys outside or keys in outbuilding/garage doors.
  • Keep keys away from the letterbox to stop burglars ‘fishing’ for them.
  • Use timers for lights and radios if you need to be away from home overnight.
  • Don’t leave your bin out where they can be used as a step to climb a wall, fence or gate.
  • Have a neighbour check that milk bottles, parcels and post are not left outside or near the letterbox.
  • Visible burglar alarms, good lighting, and carefully directed and limited security lighting can act as deterrents.
  • If your car has keyless entry, consider purchasing a faraday bag that blocks the signal preventing thieves from using the signal to get in to your car.
  • For further advice please see: www.crimestoppers-uk.org/keeping-safe
