Vigilance call to beat burglars

POLICE are asking Edenthorpe residents to be vigilant and help them to tackle burglaries in the village.

Officers made the appeal at the Partners and Communities Together Meeting for the Armthorpe area, at Armthorpe Community Centre.

Tackling dwelling house burglaries in Edenthorpe is currently a priority for action for the PACT group.

People attending the meeting were asked to keep an eye on neighbouring properties for any suspicious behaviour.

Residents were also told about the success of a burglar-busting operation called Operation Optimal.

The operation saw officers targeting hotspot areas at key times which has ‘significantly’ reduced offending.

It was agreed to keep the issue as a priority for April.
