Burglary in E5
My friend was burgled some time between 11:30 am and 3pm on Saturday afternoon (15 May). They broke into her basement flat on Lockhurst St, Clapton through the front window (broke the glass and climbed through as the window was safely locked!).
They took some things she can replace (an old ipod, a sony vsio laptop, a banana yellow bike!) but things she can’t too, like jewellery that belonged to her great-grandma (wedding rings etc). If anyone knows any places we can go look for these things (particularly the jewellry), please could you let me know.
Speaking to the policeman, it seems that the E5 area is a hotspot for burglaries at the moment. If you live in the area, make sure your property is as safe as possible (e.g. trim back hedges that conceal your flat from the street as burglars use this to their advantage, keep spare keys hidden so they can’t make an easy getaway).
