The number of car break-ins in Woensel-Noord has almost doubled in the first four months of 2016 compared to last year. That said sergeant near the Achtse Barrier, Erik Pareren on twitter. He also gives the a warning to always remove your valuables from the car.
It concerns breaking into passenger cars, where in the first three months of 2015 this was 222, but now it has increased to 442, a 99% increase.
For this reason the police has consulted with the neighborhood watch Achter Barrier. Maybe there will also be preventive measures taken at night to bring down the numbers.
Car break-ins and bicycle theft are since 2014 no longer a priority in the municipality, according to the annual police report from 2013. This is because they are not high impact crimes.
