Oil Tank Break-In

 

Message from Rother Neighbourhood Watch

We are residents of Catsfield and in the early hours of Monday morning (3am Sunday night), we were alerted by our dog to an intruder in our back garden trying to break into our oil tank.

My husband scared the intruder off by banging on the window but we wanted to make other residents aware to keep an eye on your garden security, protect your oil tanks and be vigilant to this type of activity.

This isn’t the first time this has happened to us, and we have secured gates to our property.

The intruders are coming across adjacent fields and running pipes from cars parked away from the property, displaying a high level of premeditation and determination.
