Well, someone’s having a bad day and it’s not the law abiding people of my town. An hour ago, my neighbour spotted two men climbing over the fence of a house across the street that she knows to be currently empty. When questioned he claimed to be doing the garden. It just so happened that police officer Adam was driving past and within minutes one of the miscreants was collared and loaded into the van. The other got away, but the locals had seen him with another well known skelm and off went Adam to fetch him.
We all got a good look at the poor unfortunate in the back of the van. I can’t swear to it, but he looked very much like one of the two who tried the same agile maneuver over my fence.
Good job wide-awake neighbour and thanks to police officer Adam for making our streets just that little bit safer.
AND AN UPDATE : It turns out that these two individuals discovered the house was empty some time ago and were using it as their hidey hole, making forays into the rest of the village for plunder.
