Information about crime ?
Last week, a local free English newspaper listed a e-mail address for people to provide information about suspicious activity and/or crime related information that may assist others, or in actually helping police investigate existing and on-going crimes. The e-mail address is if anyone is interested.

Break in in Albox
Our house was broken into in Albox during March while we were away. Luckily neighbours called police and nothing taken just door damage. New security system now installed for peace of mind.

Break in and theft on farm near Partoloa

We have reciently had a break in on our farm which has been left empty for sometime as my father has had a stroke and had to return to the UK.

As the farm is in a remote area, the theves have had plenty of time to help themselves.

Outside doors were smashed in, they managed to remove the grills around the doors.

Furniture, tv, fridge freezer, cooker, washing machine and items from the tool shed were taken.

There is also a caravan on site and theves smashed through the door and went through the place.

This is the second break in the last 2 years.

We are taking steps to make the house and mobile home more secure.

There is nothing left to take now.:mad:

As we employed someone to visit the site, it would appear the theft was recient within the last week 20th - 24th June 2012

Location not mentioned on this thread for security reasons.

Water Meter
I have just been informed that out water meter has been stolen:mad:
Why on earth would some take a water meter is beyond me!!
We're near Piedra Amarilla. The only reason the theft was detected was because friends walking their dog noticed that we had 'a moat' around our house and water was gushing out of the pipe. Thankfully it has been turned off.
God knows how long that had been going on:mad:

Haven't a clue as to know what to do when we return there this month :confused:

Sorry to hear about that Sterling - we live in Piedra Amarilla and you just can't watch everything all the time. You need to go to the Ayuntamiento in Partloa and tell them about it and they will replace it for you, usually pretty quickly. Could one of your neighbours/friends do this for you so that it's sorted before you come out? You also need to inform the local police.

Unfortunately no matter what you do now with regards to reporting it - you will have to pay for the water used / run away.

The Water Company will only not charge you for water which escaped before delivery to the Meter - and escapes / leaks from the meter and from there to your house you are responsible for the repair and any water lost - so expect a largish bill next time on arrives.

Is / was your meter lying on the ground or was it in a Caja - if it was just in the open I would suggest a Box / Caja for it - lockable - and have a nieghbour unlock it the week the meter reader is due.
