Annoyingly, our car was broken into on Friday evening, sometime between 6-9pm. It was parked on Leathermarket Street
and the perpetrator smashed the front passenger window. Our car is not a prime target, there was nothing of any real value in the car - three child seats and some baby toys. Regrettably, I hadn't bothered to leave the glovebox open so the thief probably thought that there was some hidden treasure in there. But actually, there was only a sign saying “No Valuables” and a satnav cable (not the device). The thief stole the cable! However, the environmentally conscious thief kindly deposited the near worthless cable in one of the small green waste bins in Leathermarket Gardens
so I was able to retrieve it (yes, I did go looking in the bins).
Anyhow, I just wanted to let neighbours know that for years we have left our car parked with the glovebox open and in it a sign saying “No Valuables” and had no trouble. On the occasion that I didn't do this our car was attacked. Lesson learnt.
