In the past few weeks we have had an increase in reported burglaries and break-ins on Victoria Dock.
I understand from the Local Police Team that the gang responsible have been operating on the Dock mostly between 8.30am and 10am.
Is is suspected the thieves have been watching properties for residents going to work, checking that there is no one in by knocking on doors then breaking into properties.
Residents need to take extra precautions when leaving their properties and to watch for any unusual activity.
The Local Police Team are actively trying to apprehend the culprits responsible but they do need help and information to tackle the crime.
The Riverside Neighbourhood Policing Team can be contacted during office hours on Te. 220178.
