Just to warn everyone to be extra vigilant...
We live near the Park Hall Road end of Clive Road and our car (which was parked in our driveway) was "broken into" last night, sometime between around 9:30pm and 6:45am. Nothing of any great value was in the car and they only stole a couple of small items - nothing of great value, but they did make a mess of the inside of the car. I really just wanted to put out a reminder to neighbours to be extra vigilant.
What was slightly strange was that there was no forced entry and the alarm did not go off. This means that someone disabled the car's eletrics (I understand there are devices available that can do this....). The car is less than a year old and has an auto-locking system if it is left unlocked for a certain number of minutes so the car was not unlocked. They were very quiet (we sleep at the front of the house and have a gravel drive and still didn't hear anything).
I have reported the incident to the police.
