Crime – 100 vans Targeted in Bilston!

I want to ask Wednesfield residents to keep a watchful eye on your neighbour’s property.

Don’t be scared to contact the police if you think something is suspicious. Or something looks to be out of place. Criminals are active all through the day and night.

It is s being reported that during this year, more than 100 vans have been targeted by criminals in and around Bilston! I think this is an extraordinary number of crimes, clearly aimed at tradesmen and traders.

The police are warning Bilstonian’s about this outbreak and asking them to take precautions, against this type of crime.

Clearly crime takes place where there is an opportunity.

I don’t want to see Wednesfield crime stats creep up the crime tables as the heat comes on Bilston.

Its up to all of us to do what we can to make all our neighbourhoods safe. To do that we must all work together and deal with these potential incidents. Look after your neighbour, and hopefully your neighbour will look after you!17 Police Lamp
