Changed them myself, takes a couple of minutes, very simple, bought them on Amazon.

These are one of the best.

Sorry to hear about this happening again.

Can you put a padlock on the gate?

Just caught a chap trying to get in through the neighbours' front window across the way. Just happened to be going out to our wheelie bins.

The neighbours are running a light strip across the front of their house and it's powered from inside, but the cable is going through the window. The light strip was off, but the window was still noticeably open just enough to let the cable through.

I'll let them know when they get home from work, but tell yours neighbours and yourselves, to watch out for that stuff and don't make themselves an easy target.

It was in Lohunda...
Turns out it was my parents house!
I didn't know JoePie was their neighbour but I was only giving out to my Dad at the weekend for leaving the little window ajar. I contacted JoePie and asked if it happened in Lohunda and sure enough it did...spooky
Waiting to hear from my parents if anything was stolen

Thanks for clarifying location. It's good to know what areas are being targeted by opportunistic burglars. At least then, strangers who are roaming around can be made aware that they are being watched.

We had a break in last week. Someone climbed up on the extension and in through an open window. grabbed my jewellery box, left a tablet that was on the bedside table.
I'm gutted. I didn't have anything expensive but several special, sentimental peices.
More annoying is that I was away and it was the babysitter (granny) who left the window open.
I'm definitely getting a house alarm next year
We live in Mulhuddart BTW.
