Over the weekend, there was an attempted home invasion. Someone tried to kick in the backdoor of a house while the occupants were at home (asleep at night). A home security system alarm woke up the home owners who called the police.
While Hope Valley North is general a safe place, there has been an increase in crime over the past few months from unlocked cars being rifled through, to locked cars being broken into, to the burglary of a house while no one was home to an attempted break-in at night with the family at home.
Please beware of your surrounds and call the police if you see anything suspicious.
