Police Appeal After Burglar Steals Car

Tuesday January 14 2014

POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information after a burglar snatched car keys from a Barnsley home before making off with a silver Vauxhall Astra.

The culprit struck between 10.30pm on Saturday, January 11, and 1am on Sunday, January 12.

A window of a house on Ollerton Road, Athersley North, was smashed and the keys were stolen from the sill.

The vehicle was recovered later on Sunday at nearby Bramah Street, Carlton.

Officers are urging motorists to make sure that keys and other valuables are kept out of the view and reach of criminals.

Any witnesses or anyone with information about the burglary or the vehicle being taken or dumped should ring South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 342 of January 12.

This is a disgrace .
Best part is that these robbing gits can break into your home and you can't do a thing to defend yourself or your home .
The law works for these scum because they break in to your property and you do defend your property you get most prison time than they do and they can claim against you for any injuries sustained .
The law is ridiculous and it's about time it changed .
We are the ones who should have the law on our side , to be honest I think it would be a good deterrent more than anything .
