Good News. Yesterday 12th November in Oxford Road, Littlemore at about 11am a woman walked into the back door of a house and stole the occupants handbag. The elderly occupants who were in the house at the time saw the woman leave and tried to give chase. At the same time the Refuse men were collecting rubbish, saw what was going on and managed to stop the woman and retrieve the handbag. Well done to the our refuse collectors for being so observant. The police were called and because of the information from the refuse collectors the woman was identified and was arrested. Please advise your neighbours to keep all doors locked when they are not in the room and handbags and car keys should be kept out of sight.
