Burglary in Clifden Road
Early July, a daytime burglar entered a home in Clifden Road. The resident who was not at home at the time returned home to confront the burglar face to face in the house. The burglar made a swift exit carrying the proceeds from the burglary.  The victim telephoned the police who quickly arrived on the scene and a major search of the area undertaken.  Thanks to the vigilance of residents living nearby, the police were informed where the burglar was seen climbing over back garden fences.  The police surrounded the area in question and a thorough search, led by a police canine unit was undertaken. The canine unit led Police to an unlocked back garden shed where the burglar was found hiding inside and the burglar was arrested.

Police again ask residents that should you leave your home, even for a short period; never to leave a door or a window open as it’s too much of a temptation for sharp eyed burglar(s).  The police also advise that to avoid expensive garden tools being stolen, garden sheds should be securely locked at all times.    

2010/11 Football Season
Brentford’s first home game of the season will be the 1st Round of the Carling Cup, against Cheltenham Town, Tuesday 10th August, kick off 7.45pm.  Brentford’s first league match takes place, Saturday 14th August, against Walsall, kick off 3pm.  To avoid any possible problems at home games, Neighbourhood Watch ask all residents to please keep all green recycling bins containing bottles out of sight from passers by.

Children’s Scooters
Sadly a growing trend is the theft of children’s scooters.  A number of thefts have taken place near children’s play areas at local parks, while one has recently gone ‘missing’ in Hamilton Road.  When not in use, children are inclined to leave their scooters on the ground or leaning up against walls or railings, easy pickings for a sharp eyed thief.  A stolen scooter causes heartbreak to the child and financial misery to the parent.
