South Wales Police Report At Least 4 Properties Targeted By Thieves In Swansea
Quoted from page:
It goes without saying, the first thing you should be doing is taking all valuables upstairs with you when you go to bed. Just performing a quick sweep through the house can pay off if you are every unlucky enough to be a victim.
Doors that have glass panels on them are fairly easy to smash with an elbow or common household tool. A burglar can just reach in and unlock the door.
Similarly Upvc doors with quarter panels or half panels can be kicked through and as above, unlocked by reaching in.
To combat this you should make sure you remove the key when going to bed or consider upgrading you door to something solid.
Making sure you have the best locks installed is crucial. The best and cheapest tactic is to make sure you have British Standard, insurance approved locks. You can check by looking at the front of the lock to see if it has the kitemark on it. If it does not then you should contact a locksmith to upgrade you right away.

Great work by two of our PCSOs!
PCSOs Danielle James and Brad Owens were on patrol on Friday afternoon when they heard over the radio that a burglary has just taken place in Mount Pleasant.
They made their way to the area and spotted a man matching the description of the thief. They approached him and could see some of the suspected stolen property in a bag.
Officers then attended and arrested the 41-year-old man who has been charged with burglary. He is due to appear before magistrates’ court this morning.
