Police are warning people in Lichfield and Burntwood to be on their guard after a spate of “opportunist” crimes.

Officers say properties have been targeted across the region.

A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police said:

“The opportunist thieves have gained entry to properties via open windows and have been searching for jewellery and cash.

“We would remind people to ensure that they lock windows and doors when their property is unattended and to report suspicious activity to police.”

  1. I remember the days when we used to have a police force that operated from police stations that you would see almost on a daily basis that would act as a deterrant to these kinds of human vermin who steal and cause other criminal acts.

  2. @Mr Scholl – a vote for the Tories is a vote for defunding the police. A vote for the Tories is a vote to increase crime. We are safer without them, every single time.

  3. Had 2 boy racer cars down our street acting strange last Thursday 23rd at 2am in the morning. A worrying situation.

  4. Given that Labour (I am not a member) always managed public spending better, then yes.

    The analysis that follows is based on government borrowing as reported by the House of Commons Library and other data supplied by the Office for Budget Responsibility.It covers years since 1946, which is the entire post-war period.
    First, Labour borrows less than the Conservatives. The data shows that.

    And second, Labour has always repaid debt more often than the Conservatives and has always repaid more debt, on average.

    Or, to put it another way, the Conservatives are the party of high UK borrowing and low debt repayment contrary to all popular belief.

    Data from the commies in the House of Commons Library.

  5. Rt. Hon Tarquin Farquhar Smith – Labour could hardly do worse than this.
    “So now we’ve Got Brexit Done, we have a properly funded NHS, delivering more GP appointments and operations than ever before, right?”,

    “No.”,

    “Well, okay, maybe that promise was a lie, but immigration is way down and young Brits are able to afford houses again, right?”,

    “No.”,

    “Ah! So our energy bills have gone down, and pensioners no longer have to choose between eating and heating, right?”,

    “Afraid not, no.”,

    “But we’ve signed a bunch of global trade deals and there’s more food than we can sell, from all over the world, flowing in, right?”,

    “Actually, we’re starting to see big gaps on supermarket shelves.”,

    “Okay okay, but the food that IS there costs less and is more affordable?”,

    “No.”,

    “Come on! Surely we’ve at least repealed a bunch of those meddling EU laws and can buy wonky cucumbers by the imperial ounce again?”,

    “Nope.”,

    “So…why did I vote for Brexit again?”

  6. belleview – Amusing to see snowflake Tories having conniptions because the nasty lady said a bad word.
    Now, the Tory MP who suggested a bomb be planted in Anneliese Dodds’ office somehow doesn’t have the tone police feeling his collar.

  7. Tony Blahhh, smiling assassin and his mega rich wife Cheerie, the human rights paper went through like the proverbial off the shovel, nepotism at its best. Where are they now?
