Neighbourhood Watch warns to keep windows closed at night In Orihuela Costa and Laguna Green we have Neighbourhood Watch groups representing 131 residencias. We record our own numbers of crimes committed which on our residencias are normally very low. However, during the summer months of 2013, May to October, we recorded a total of 70 houses that that been entered. This number since the house building boom days before 2009 is abnormal and the vast majority were committed between the hours of 4am and 7am by thieves finding open or partially open windows and by using a rod with a net attached removed property from within. The numbers returned to a normal low after these months. However, in April this year we know of one such theft occurring in the Villamartín area of Orihuela Costa. On this occasion, a rod and net was used to remove car keys and the remote control to the residencia gates, followed by the rent a car which was parked outside. In an attempt to make residents and visitors aware, could you please warn them of this activity and not to leave vulnerable windows open or partially open, especially during the night. Also please do not leave articles in view from outside. By taking these simple precautions the thieves may be prevented from spoiling things, especially if you are on holiday here.
