At a 30 minute on-line Neighbourhood Watch meeting with PCSO Lucia Popovici (Designated Ward Officer – Crouch End) and three other local Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators on Friday 26 November, at the request of several residents, I asked Lucia if we could have the current advice about the prevention of the theft of catalytic converters and this is included in the Motor Theft spread PDF .
Lucia said the main issue in the Crouch End area at the time was an increase in burglaries and has sent us the information sheets below – click to view:
- Crouch End November Neighbourhood Watch newsletter
- Motor thefts news spread – Crime Prevention advice
- Burglary news spread – Crime Prevention advice
In addition to suggesting you read these may I remind you to let GMTRA know of any crime you experience so we may immediately circulate the appropriate warning and any request for information round the neighbourhood.
Shortly after circulating an earlier message about the theft of a visitor’s black Range Rover parked alongside the tree outside 63/65 Glasslyn Road on the night of Tuesday 30 November we have been advised by a neighbour that a member of their family said they believed the theft took place shortly after 3.00am (ie morning of Wednesday 1 December).
Attempted Break In
On the night of Wednesday 1 December someone attempted to break into a Montenotte Road house near the corner of Glasslyn Road. The intruder smashed the security light and tried to jemmy open the rear French Window but the locks held so no entry.
Do watch out and take care of yourselves and your neighbours. In these dark nights and with Christmas approaching it’s more important than ever!
