Burglary Warning

A timely warning from Enfield police of problems very near to us in Oakleigh Ward.
The last couple of nights has seen four burglaries being committed on Cockfosters Ward from Hadley Wood down to Oakwood. Each has had the same M.O - someone completely removing a pane of glass from a downstairs window in order to gain entry.
However, two suspects were arrested last night for a similar offence with the same M.O. It is yet to be established if the two arrested are responsible for all the burglaries.
The purpose of this message is to keep you informed and to ask you remain vigilant.
