The old boy next door to me spotted the local chavs breaking into my house a few days ago, called the cops, and the boys and girls in blue were there (in force) in minutes and caught the poor deprived souls before they could depart with their booty.
Paperwork and follow up at the station was fairly poor, but most of the blame for that is my fault for having a mong for a housemate.
And the WPC was an absolute babe, which always helps. Maybe she would help me if I lost a cat?????????
If a report of people breaking into house/car etc is recieved and the rather nice peeps doing the damage are still in the house / car then as a norm you will get an immediate response as there is a slim chance they will catch the offenders.
If you get home and report you been burgled, no chance......
