Defendant admits burglary at murder trial

23 Apr
April 23, 2009

LONDON – A man on trial for the brutal murder of two French university students in their London flat admitted on Wednesday to carrying out a burglary at the property, while still denying the murder charge.
Daniel Dano Sonnex, 23, pleaded guilty to the burglary as he appeared alongside co-defendant Nigel Farmer, 34, to face trial at the Old Bailey in London. Farmer denies any theft charges.
The two men are alleged to have repeatedly stabbed Gabriel Ferez and Laurent Bonomo, both 23, and set fire to their bodies at the students’ rented flat in the tough south London district of New Cross in June last year.
The jury was told that Sonnex had pleaded guilty to a single count of burglary which took place on the day of the murder and at the same address.
It relates to the theft of a bank card, credit card, two Sony PSP games consoles and two mobile phones.
Both defendants deny murdering the students and charges of false imprisonment and arson.
Sonnex and Farmer are alleged to have held the two victims captive at the flat before killing them and setting fire to the property.
The victims, second-year students from Clermont-Ferrand in central France, were nearing the end of a three-month research placement studying DNA at Imperial College when they were killed.
The first full day of evidence will be heard on Friday.
The victims’ parents were in court, accompanied by an interpreter.
A lawyer representing the parents said they were prepared for a harrowing trial.
The first days will be very, very, very hard because evidence will come out which in my view will be unpleasant to see, Marie-Claire Sparrow told journalists outside the court.

Yet another London burglary. My only advice is to change your wooden door for a Titan security door

Yet another London burglary. My only advice is to change your wooden door for a Titan security door

 

As you can clearly see this door is a PVC door fitted with a multipoint locking system. I suspect the owner was very impressed with the locking system. But in fact a PVC door is extremely easy to break into, which is clearly shown on this actual burglary photograph. No the only thing that will keep them out is a steel door. Please give us a call now on 08440 04 04 04 and get the job done properly

Recession blamed as burglaries rise

Recession blamed as burglaries rise

Knife crime is down 12% but the number of domestic burglaries has increased by 4%

Latest crime figures have revealed rises in the number of burglaries, personal thefts and robberies at knifepoint as the recession takes hold.

Recorded crime figures from police forces in England and Wales showed a 4% rise in domestic burglaries between October and December, while the British Crime Survey showed a 25% rise in the number of thefts.

But there was a sharp fall in the number of killings involving knives, which fell by 12%, and total recorded crime was down by 4%.

Last year a leaked draft memo from Home Secretary Jacqui Smith revealed fears inside Government of sharp rises in crime linked to the economic downturn.

Earlier this month Ms Smith launched a scheme to help improve home security with money-off vouchers for door and window locks from DIY stores.

The 4% increase in domestic burglaries – to 75,600 – is a repeat of the rise in home break-ins recorded in the third quarter. It prompted fears of a “credit crunch crime wave” linked to the rise in unemployment.

The police figures also showed a 4% increase in burglaries at business and other premises. Overall property crime was down by 4% with falls in vehicle break-ins, other thefts and criminal damage.

Police minister Vernon Coaker acknowledged the “new challenges” of burglary and other so-called acquisitive crimes.

These home owners were very very lucky. They heard a loud banging noise at their front door they went to investigate but the burglars had already left. This is quite common a burglar will ring the doorbell knock on the letterbox, if there is no reply he will then start forcing the door open. Quite a dramatic experience for anybody. Once again my advice, is to get a Titan door installed. In our experience once they see this door they go elsewhere.

Google Street search a gift to burglars 20/03/09

March 20, 2009

Good morning everybody,

It’s a beautiful day today, the sun is shining. I just heard on the radio that Google have launched Street view. When I got into the office I went straight to my computer and looked it up.

The first thing I thought is oh my God this is an amazing tool for the local burglars. Basically they can plan everything, they can see how many locks are on the main door to a building, they can see drainpipes along the walls of the building, entrances to ground floor apartments, escape routes, it really is going to help the burglars. So once again prevention is the key. Make sure you have a Titan steel door installed straightaway, call us on 08448 04 04 04 don’t let the burglar have the upper hand

Take care out there, and view Google Street search for yourself, and make your own opinion of the potential problems that it could cause.

You’re welcome to leave me any comments regarding this situation and I shall insert them on to this blog. Any opinions or other fears would be very helpful, or indeed if you think it’s a good idea

Amanda
