Beware of thieves

This morning at 5.50 am I disturbed my neighbours house from being broken into ,well actually they were in the house taking cash when I disturbed them .

Cash was taken which was not in a secure place .
In dalyan this is rare but acts a reminder to us all that opportunist are about trying unlocked secured doors and helping themselves to cash etc

The guys I saw ....6 feet slim build small tash wearing a black t shirt and light coloured cap ....second one smaller 5-9 perhaps at most and stockier wearing a grey jersey type hoodie and black shorts ,the hoodie with no sleeves .

I disturbed them and sat awaiting translator with janderme .
A villa was also broken into close to use and lap,tops ,cash and iPads taken .

Be aware please all of security ,cash and night time Windows and doors

Re: Beware of thieves

It is also a good idea not to leave things in plain view. One of our guests in Bodrum years ago had her handbag lifted from her bedroom whilst she was at the pool. The thief did not even enter the house, he reached in through the open shutter and window. It caused us no end of grief stopping cards, report for lost passport etc. Keep important documents in a safe plac or with you in the bedroom at night.

Re: Beware of thieves

We have a small safe which is secured into the concrete floor. We keep passports/return tickets and money in there, taking out only the amount of cash that we may need for the day. We did have an attempted burglary some time ago but, being a light sleeper I heard him shaking the double glazed patio windows, trying to loosen them. He ran away when he saw my husband looking at him. It's a nasty feeling though.

Again not uncommon ..in this hot weather people leave windows open...not advisable..

Now everyone knows you have a safe with money in ??? when we lived in Turkey i knew a few people who had a safe bolted down who thought it was secure which it wasn't, didn't stop them from having the safe removed good luck.

Re: Beware of thieves

Since an attempted break in about 6 years ago,again at 5/6 in the morning,must be the preferred time for the scumbags of the parish, we felt very insecure and aware of the least bit of noise.We got grills fitted no problem,the only thing keeping me awake at night now is the heat.Some will say they are easily removed,not that quickly to let the blaggers in and out,others say they can be used as a climbing frame,so what,the whole house is done so they won't get in and probably be knackered with the excercise.
Invest a few bob in your security and have peace of mind,I did and I do.
