I have just arrived back in the UK after two weeks at our villa in Karshiyaka. We were burgled last Friday night, Saturday morning. Big score for the burglars, who I suspect are Brits that frequent a local hostelry.



Email me privately for more details and information.

Sorry to say that I am also one of the 'unfortunates' though it was in Ozankoy last October.



Could all of us VICTIMS report on this board so that everyone can see how bad the crime is at the minute.



I have to say that I am worried.

Im very sorry for you all. The Lapta police seem to be taking in british suspects then relising them without charge but giving them a bad time. I do hope that its not brits stealing from brits but from what Im hearing thats where the finger is pointing. It all seems to stem from bars around the lapta area. I only hope that whoever does this can be caught soon so we can all feel secure xxxx

I don't know why you are so offensive 'and then what' ??????



If the full extent of the crime was known and which areas it was happening in then we could all be more vigilent.

The number for the Lapta Police Station is 821 2651.



I do not think that there is any doubt that it is a British Firm doing this and I believe that we were followed home from one of the local bars in Lapta on Danny Fisher's farewell performance in Northern Cyprus (you can work it out) last Friday. The bar is a local haunt for Brits. I think that we were targeted the previous week and the burglars had set us up as their next mark.



Incidentally, there were at least eight break ins last weekend and all of the victims were British holiday makers.



The B******* want catching and either locking up or deporting. TRNC may not be crime free, but most of it seems to be imported from the UK!!

Sorry to hear about these burglaries, how are they getting in? I was wondering if there was any similarities in the means of entry, then perhaps we could use some measures to make any vulnerable areas more secure.

I wonder how many of these burglaries are being carried out during the day and how many at night? There doesn't seem to be any particular pattern, from what I have read about them. If, as has been suggested, they are being carried out by an organised "gang", I would have thought that the properties would Also, as mentioned in message 22, are there similarities in the means of entry.



I am very sorry for those who have been burgled - a horrible feeling.

Most people these days carry a digital camera or a mobile phone with camera.

How about taking snaps of any "suspicious " vehicles in the area,and then if it does transpire that burglaries take place then the pics may come in handy to trace and connect the scumbbags responsible.

Do beware too, if you have anybody by to look at "For Sale" items.



We had 3 English blokes in a few weeks back to look at an item I'd advertised and they left me with a very uncomfortable feeling....

These burglars may well be British. Remember a couple of years ago the 'friendly English taxi driver' Graeme who would take people to the airport and go back and rob their houses. He also would make friends with people in the pub, find out where they lived and go and burgle them while he knew where they were.

There was also the case of the driver who worked for Ian's Auctions who would be delivering or collecting items for customers, casing the houses and going back to take whatever he fancied. He was caught with dozens of TV's cameras,laptops etc.

Not forgetting Generator Mike who sold and installed generators, then went back to steal and re-sell them.

We really all need to be careful who we trust, meaning Brit's as well. Some are in TRNC because they are running away from something in the UK and finding things lean there so are now getting desperate.

Can someone please tell us all how these burglars are getting in? Are they walking into the back of property's while owners are in the front? Those that are getting burgled whilst asleep in bed, is it simply windows left open?

It would be helpful to know!

By the way I really do feel for anyone this has happened to.

This sorry state of affairs needs proper coordination to be effective. That is the local police forces job, but they do need our help. Use your 'common' sense and do not leave property insecure, sheds open, ladders lying around or advertise your wealth & absence. A neighbourhood watch scheme is a useful detterrent if it's run correctly. One of my neighbours mentioned he had seen a couple of young lads cycling around houses slowly at dusk and looking into gardens. He sent his dogs out into the garden and the lads took off sharpish.

If, as this thread seems to suggest, there is a small gang of low life 'Brit's' doing the robbing then let's hope the boys in blue get a result and soon.

can I also add to this item and ask people to be careful about what they are saying in bars etc. "Oh we are going to XXX on Friday night" or similar remarks are very helpful to would-be villains. I feel most people are targetted because of chance remarks aout their plans for the future.

I hope that they are caught cos the police here no how to deal with scum like these.



Never mind deporting them as may be done, they should spend a couple of years in Lefkosa jail, then deport them. They will not come back after that.

All these burglaries are just to feed their dependance on Karaoke.

Re message 17



I got them to install an alarm system in my home, if it goes off, u get alerted by text, u can also have friends/neighbours alerted on the system as well.



Also u get a control panel in the bedroom, so that protects the rest of your home, when your asleep.



Well worth having for peace of mind, speak to Martin at the Lambousa Market, very helpful guy.
