Please be aware – particularly dog owners!
Paint markings have been left outside a few properties in West Tytherley (about 20 minutes from Monxton) in the last week or so, which are common marks left by those looking to steal dogs. They mark the houses with dogs for another team to then come along and steal your beloved pet. One man knocked on the front door of a labrador-owning household and then ran off. The Police were called and came along with identikit photos and the householder identified the man – who was dark, Mediterranean-looking. The Police have been looking for this man for some time as he repeatedly appears on CCTV and in relation to a number of dog thefts.
So please keep a look out for any unusual markings near your house or driveway, or any suspicious activity.
